Christopher Whitmore was born in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin in the waning years of the swinging ’60s. He has been a writer since he first took crayon in hand and posted his manifesto on the family refrigerator — a rambling screed about the inherent evils of broccoli.
His formative years were dominated by comic books, sci-fi, and fantasy. Such stories have deeply influenced his worldview, which is more Trekkian-optimistic than Blade Runner-dystopian. He values Superman’s ability to inspire hope over Batman’s vengeance-driven nature, and he believes that such escapist fare can teach us lessons in ways traditional fiction cannot.
Notoriously inept from a social standpoint, he has only recently begun allowing other people to read his work. His first novel, SAVIOUR, was published in 2017.
