Despite being as English as a cup of tea, Chris Page has not managed to spend much time in his home country. He was born in Sweden and after growing up in Gloucestershire and London, he drifted off to New York and then Osaka, Japan, where he has remained since 1989 with his wife, kids and big, fat, black and white cat.
Chris is the author of the novels Weed, King of the Undies World, and The Underpants Tree (available in paperback and ebook formats) and short story collections Shorts (ebook only) and Un-Tall Tales (paperback only).

Writers can make up entire universes and people them with whatever they want. That's pretty neat.
Also, a friend just told me he laughed while reading King of the Undies World, and that provoked some job satisfaction. (less)
