About Christopher Gabriel
Christopher Gabriel is an author slinging short stories along with the almighty novel. He has been writing since his high school days on through to adulthood, moved over the years by his peers and the prose of the greats. The written word is his burning passion and his desire to become a published author didn’t hit its peak until his mid-to-late twenties when he was managing a Barnes & Noble. Not trying to sound like a cliche–the bookseller dreaming of being a writer–he worked on his lunch breaks to craft short stories and to study up on the publishing industry. Organizing book signings, helping process inventory to better understand the distribution lines, and studying up on the writers market in the reference section, all gave him the insight of how to plan a journey up the mountain to being published. Then came the fun part: writing.
Over the last several years, he has written several short stories and pieces of flash fiction that have been submitted to contests in magazines such as The Writer and Writer’s Digest, and, more importantly, he completed his first draft of a full length novel, which is now under a major revision with an estimated completion date of Fall 2021.
Besides writing (and also reading a lot) he spends his time being: a dad to a beautiful little human that is growing too fast (along with parenting a few pet animals), a husband, and an avid traveler to the wilderness. He graduated from Purdue University and lives in Chicago, IL.
