Chris is the author of YA novels, KOOK and STORMS, as well as GIRL, BOY SEA which will be published by Head of Zeus in August 2019. ‘I’m obsessed with the sea; the beauty, the danger, the un-knowable nature of the ocean. It’s why I work in conservation. It’s why I surf. It’s what I write about.’ Chris’s books explore the blurred lines between safe and dangerous, tame and un-tamed, urban and wild; the wild space between being young and so-called ‘growing up.’ When not writing, he works parts time for the global NGO, Whale and Dolphin Conservation. He lives near Bath, with his wife and daughter.
