Christian Galacar grew up in Ipswich, Massachusetts, a small suburb north of Boston. He attended the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where he received a BBA degree in Finance. Although interested in writing fiction from a young age, it wasn't until 2012—and realizing the banking industry wasn't all that fun—that he decided to pursue it as a career.

He still resides in Massachusetts with his wife and a spoiled cat that is constantly trying to usurp his authority. He is always working on his next book.

Write a lot and read a lot.

Also, chances are your writing will be terrible at first, and that's okay. Let yourself be okay with imperfection, so long as you learn from your mistakes. (less)
Christian Galacar An untitled mystery novel. A snowstorm, a mysterious death, a small New England island off the coast of Cape Ann. It'll be a good time.

First Chapters

First chapters are my favorite things to write. They burst out of you, helped by that initial surge of excited adrenaline that comes with every new story idea that has enough substance to stick around in the old noggin and not be forgotten with the shopping list. First chapters are where decisions are made: Is there a book here? Can I let this thing run itself out for four or five hundred pages? D Read more of this blog post »

“Drama is the last drug of the desperate whore”
Christian Galacar

“Does anyone ever? Just take the leap and hope for the best. The bets we dare to make when the odds are against us are what define us. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. But that’s life. We can’t always protect ourselves. And as long as you do your honest best with what you have, everything else is just noise.”
Christian Galacar, Cicada Spring

“What had happened to her did not need to define her. It didn’t have to be who she was. And it didn’t have to determine who she would become, either. It was time to move on.”
Christian Galacar, Cicada Spring

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Fiction is the truth inside the lie.”
Stephen King

“The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them -- words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller but for want of an understanding ear.”
Stephen King
