Chris Dews

Goodreads Author

in Bradford, Yorkshire, The United Kingdom
May 08, 1946



Member Since
April 2014

In 1946, Chris was born in the bombed out, grimy and exhausted north England town of Bradford in Yorkshire.
His father was an engineer and his mother, surprisingly for the time and place, had a deep love of literature. Chris grew up with talk of the latest works by D. H. Lawrence and Dylan Thomas buzzing around the small house.
Chris studied Electronic Engineering in London, meeting and marrying Valerie in 1969. He worked for several years in Hampshire, then at the age of 31, the couple left to live in the Californian Silicon Valley, where Chris enjoyed a successful career as an Electronic Engineer.
The author imprisoned in the engineer broke free upon his retirement in 2012, and Chris began his first full-length novel, ‘Aengus Amused’.

Fantasy/Reality – what is it?

When I’m asked what genre I write in, I say “Fantasy/Reality”.

I think many people see these terms as opposites. Fantasy is not reality. Reality is not fantasy. However, when applied to stories, you can say that fantasy/reality is “fantasy with real people”.

“What does this mean?” I hear you think. Or is that, “Umm…?”

I’ll try to explain. Many fantasies have characters...

Antler Jinny & the Raven by Chris Dews
"Usually I’m a little bit apprehensive when I open the book and see a prologue, but for this bit the prologue was interesting and layered. I do however feel at times it was superfluous, which could for the most part apply to the whole book. I felt..." Read more of this review »
Antler Jinny & the Raven by Chris Dews
"I loved this novel, which captivatingly incorporates Celtic history and mythology into an epic coming-of-age fantasy. This is the second book in the Druid Lailoken series, but it works fine as a stand-alone. Epic fantasy isn’t one of my preferred..." Read more of this review »

Set in 65 CE Scotland in the aftermath of Roman domination all across Europe and Briton, fairies meddle in mortal affairs, druids fight amongst themselves, and the Queen of Dragons ha..." Read more of this review »
