Christopher Ruz was born in Hong Kong, raised in Vienna, and is now settled in Melbourne, Australia. Although he graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Industrial Design, his first love has always been writing. He's been published by Weaponizer, Labyrinth Inhabitant's Magazine and Birdville Magazine, and has won both the first Ergofiction Search Term Challenge and the first Birdville Impromptu Award.
Ruz now writes full time, splitting his attentions between his Century of Sand fantasy epic, his horror serial Rust, and his spy thrillers, which are published under the pseudonym D.D. Marks. His next release will be the third book in his ongoing horror series, Rust.
