Member Since
January 2012


Christopher Kesting is the author of three previous novels. His debut novel, the futuristic sci/fi thriller Rubicon Harvest (October 2008) was followed by Thrones for the Innocent (June 2009), a paranormal tale of justice, fate and spiritual faith. His third novel, Envar Island (November 2011), is an epic science-fiction adventure that has also been adapted into an award-winning screenplay and is awaiting possible production.

Mr. Kesting’s non-writing career is as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA). He has been practicing anesthesia for nearly 15 years, but writing creatively for as long as he can remember. Chris is originally from the Chicagoland area, but has called western Michigan home for over ten years.
