His first novel was shortlisted in both the QWC/Hachette Australia Manuscript Development Program and the HarperCollins Varuna Award for Manuscript Development. Chris currently works as a web editor and moderates a novel writers group at the ACT Writers Centre. You can find him at: http://fandelyon.com/.
