Chris has worked as a freelance copywriter in Manchester’s advertising industry for 15 years. During that time, he’s created websites, brochures, reports and email campaigns for an array of organisations. These include charities, educational establishments and government bodies along with many private businesses.
He is also the author of twelve compelling thrillers, the majority of which are set in Manchester. In addition to several nominations for crime-writing prizes – for his novels and short stories – Chris was named by Waterstones as one of their ’25 Authors of the Future’.
While working as an RLF Writing Fellow at the University of Manchester, Chris designed and delivered several talks to postgraduates on how to write effectively. These talks have since been adapted and delivered to audiences beyond the educational sector.
Chris is equally at home working with academics as employees in private organisations. His teaching style is relaxed and informal with an emphasis on making writing enjoyable.
