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, where he taught for five years until his publishing schedule no longer permitted for him to do so.
He lives in Madisonville, Kentucky with his wife Liz and daughter Penelope.
He divides his time between the Crogan Adventures and the Creeps, a middle-reader horror/mystery series coming from Abrams Amulet in fall of 2015.
