Hello, I'm Chris Lofts, the author of Helix Genesis (book one in the Nathan Helix thriller series) and Life Untenable (my first standalone novel).

Previously, I worked as an IT Project Manager and I started writing when commuting and "living" in hotels while away with my job. I came relatively late to writing but always felt I had a book or two in me. I love action, psychological and thrillers so it seemed natural to me to write in the same genres.

The thing I like best is being able to spend time with my characters and see what they get up to, how they respond to situations I create for them, how they feel about their experiences. It's often easy to ask how you would feel about something, someone or a situation but in my case, I am not my characters so it was a challenge particularly as both of my main characters in What Secrets May Say are young women.(less)
