More About the Author
Facebook: Chris Evans (Iron Elves)
They tell me I was born in Canada. I do like hockey, and I am wary of polar bears so they're probably right. I now live in New York City and can often be found in my favorite diner, the Gracie Mews, where I simply nod and my usual is served, which is great except on the days when I don't want the usual. When reading, researching, writing, and editing are called for, as they pretty much are every day of the week, you'll find me at the New York Society Library. If I'm not hungry, and need a break from all the writing and reading, I'll be off running in Central Park and imagining I'm much faster than I really am.
Most days I hover around 98.6 degrees, plus or minus the degrees in English/History, Political Science, and Masters in Military History. I started out in publishing as an editor at Ballantine/Del Rey of Random House before moving to Stackpole Books where I edited history and current affairs/conflicts books as well as the Stackpole Military History Series (you may have seen them, usually with green borders and a military medal on the cover and spine). After 13 years as an editor, however, I finally made the leap to full-time writing in July 2013.
I'm also the author of the Iron Elves fantasy series which includes A Darkness Forged in Fire, The Light of Burning Shadows, and Ashes Of A Black Frost. The Iron Elves series has been translated into Japanese, Russian, French, Czech, and German, and luckily for all the Japanese, Russian, French, Czech, and German readers out there I'm not the one doing the translations.
My next fantasy comes out in 2014, but we still don't have a title! If we can't agree on something I might just call it The Book That Dare Not Show Its Title. If you enjoyed the Iron Elves then I think you'll definitely like this new one. If you didn't enjoy the Iron Elves you're probably not reading this.
My first military history books come out this fall. The first, Bloody Jungle: America at War in Vietnam, is a photo book gleaned from soldiers who fought there. Some really fantastic stuff. Following that is Steel Thunder on the Eastern Front, a photo book on German and Russian artillery in WWII.
