Chris Travis writes fantasy and speculative fiction. He endeavors to create “miss-your-train-stop stories, the kind that absorb the reader in the happy concentration enjoyed by children at play, mystics in prayer, and artists at work, who forget to eat.” His debut novel, Stonefoot, is a harrowing adventure through a frontier wilderness full of gun smoke, blood magic, and betrayal— a work of epic, flintlock fantasy. When Chris isn’t trying to figure out how his protagonists can possibly survive, you can find him playing with his kids, practicing Shaolin Kung fu, hiking in the woods, or sipping whisky. He lives in New York City with his wife and three little boys.

“Our Lord is a foot washer, not a controller.”
Chris Travis, inSignificant: Why You Matter in the Surprising Way God Is Changing the World

“If we saw things clearly, we'd be begging him to be in a relationship with us. Instead, he comes wooing, pursuing, serving. There is no other god who seeks like this, not in heaven or on earth, in truth or in fiction, not in our wildest dreams or imaginings. Only the God of the Bible stoops, whispers, touches gently.”
Chris Travis, inSignificant: Why You Matter in the Surprising Way God Is Changing the World

“The world is a dark place, but the five-o’clock news doesn’t cover the scariest thing about it.”
