Christopher Whitmore was born in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin in the waning years of the swinging sixties. 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 that 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.
Christopher is a proud member of the Allied Authors of Wisconsin.
"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you."

SAVIOUR is a post-apocalyptic fantasy adventure that follows the exploits of a young blacksmith named Miracle Ashe as she faces a grueling test in order to come face to face with the ancient man who saved all of humanity, The Saviour.
To celebrate his one hundredth birthday, Simon The Saviour has offered to grant any one wish to each citizen who steps through the doors of his cathedral before sundown.
Of course, there’s a catch: to get in, you have to get past the other thousand people standing in The Line.
As the sun begins to set on this historic day, Miracle has already come farther than any other woman in the infamous Line, determined to meet with the holy patriarch despite the forces marshaled against her. She defiantly presses forward in the shadow of The Saviour’s cathedral, defeating each adversary she faces as the seconds count down towards twilight.
She knows nothing of the political forces swirling nearby nor the religious agency that is about to upend her world, sending her on an adventure she
never imagined and is unlikely to survive.
For The Saviour is not what he seems...
