Christopher Klim has been compared to Steinbeck, Hammett, Chandler, and Hiaasen to name a few. His first novel, Jesus Lives in Trenton, became an international cult favorite, followed by the fictionalized study of pyromania in Everything Burns. Without skipping a beat, he launched a literary magazine, the Firecracker Jones juvenile fiction series, and a new comic novel The Winners Circle. “I knew I was going to have an interesting literary life,” Klim says, “when I saw that I was mentioned in the first chapter of Salman Rushdie’s The Satanic Verses.” At one time, Klim worked on observation and exploration satellites for the space program, until departing for the private sector to develop leading-edge communications technologies. He has worked as a bartender, a freelance photographer, and an assistant to a master chef. He now teaches and mentors emerging writers and is the Director of the Professional Writer’s Program at Mercer College. He is the senior editor of Writers Notes Magazine and primary architect of www.WritersNotes.com.
In his lectures, writings, workshops, and salons this award-winning storyteller entertains with contemporary tales that extend the American experience while transcending the ordinary. He raises his two young children in New Jersey. He is currently affiliated with runny noses, strange meals, and conversations that make no sense whatsoever.
