Christopher Galvin (1981-still going!) was born in Croghan, County Offaly. He has a background in TV and Film, a BA Hons Degree in Video and he works as a short film director, writer and editor. His latest short film 'Stuck' has had a successful run on the film festival circuit. Christopher loves writing and while 'Strings' is his first published novel, it is not the first one he's written. He is busy editing 'Arthur Smallwood's Quest For Magic' right now. Since writing 'Strings' Chris has had the 'I've got no strings' song from Pinocchio stuck in his head. And now, you do too.

Brilliant. Laugh out loud fantasy that brought to mind the humour & wit of Terry Pratchett. An enjoyable read. One that will leave you smiling.
