The Author

My name is Christopher Marcus, I am 44 years old, happily hitched, and raising little Jay. I work as a WordPress and small business consultant. When I don’t raise my kid or work, I try to write and draw a little bit.

(If you got here from The Storm Lamp, don’t worry – you have not been hijacked. This is really my site – the place where I write short fiction, at any rate.)

What I have just been writing …
