Chris Calder is an author who discovered the joys of novel writing quite late in life. At an age when most people would be retired, he is not; he says he has simply changed professions and is now a full-time novelist.
Chris says that he is living proof that there is life after seventy, that brain cells kept busy do not rot, that life-threatening cancer can be totally, permanently, defeated and that a long and eventful life is a rich source to be tapped for the material that is the stuff of interesting and engaging fiction.
Until recently Chris lived in a stone cottage in rural France. He has relocated to a rural location in England, having left France reluctantly. Nothing to do with Brexit, he says!
Hi! I’ve been out of touch for a while. Nothing sinister, it was only Life getting in the way, a succession of events that have kept me away from my keyboard.
Now back in England permanently, we have much to get on with. I am delighted to tell you that I have a new publisher. We are working together towards launching my next book in a few months’ time. In the meantime, my four other novels are being updated and re-launched, with new covers.
We’re updating the website too. Thanks for dropping by, and welcome!
