Striking a balance between encouragement and correction has always been Chris’ goal when teaching and critiquing his fellow peers. He will bring that same balance to your writing, as he’ll be sure to point out both the good and the bad, where things are working and where things are broken. And whether the comment is positive or negative, you can always expect honest feedback.


Chris is currently a nomad, traveling the country with his wife and two cats. He drinks entirely too much Dr. Pepper, watches too many films, and pretty much has his video game addiction in check. Every now and again, you can find him working on his own stories and novels, either written solo or with his writing counterpart, Holly Cagney.

We're here to make you look good.
