The first book in the Crogan Adventures series, Crogan’s Vengeance, came out in 2008. Chris made the book while he was in graduate school, studying Sequential Art (that’s the academic name for comics) at SCAD-Atlanta, the metropolitan branch of the Savannah College of Art and Design. It was nominated for an Eisner award. He received another Eisner nomination a few years later for Crogan's Loyalty.
He received his MFA in 2008, and began teaching at SCAD-Atlanta shortly afterwards as an instructor in the Sequential Art and Animation departments. After five years of teaching, he decided that he would stop after the school year ended in 2013 in order to devote all of his attention to storytelling (and, of course, his family).
He lives in Nashville, Tennessee with his wife Liz and daughter Penelope.
