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.
Chris lives in a stone cottage in rural France with his wife Joan and their cat Limpit and he writes to the background music of birdsong. He says it’s a tough life!
