Chris Sharp grew up in the suburban wonderland of Alexandria, VA, where he cut his nerd teeth playing role-playing games and making gore movies with his friends.

After learning some stuff, he spent sixteen years in Brooklyn, NY, where he worked in film and commercial production by day, and was yet another wannabe novelist by night.

His first book was a 900 page epic fantasy novel that waits in the depths of a dark box. The Elementalists is his second novel, and he really hopes you like it. His third novel, Cold Counsel is a dark fantasy/crime fiction hybrid coming Feb 2017 from Tor.com Publishing. There is more coming to both those stories if the stars align in his favor, and plenty more besides.

I am planning/hoping for that sequel, but my sales numbers are a little light -- so nothing is sure yet. I've outlined two sequels and written the first third of book two, and it gets bigger and better as it goes.

I'm actively working on it, but hope to step up the pace. About a quarter of the way through--lots more to do. Things get much bigger.

Hopefully I'll have some news on another unrelated book soon, too.

Mythology, like history, is created by the conquerors. Old oral traditions are translated by outsiders, distilled through the lens of usurpers and tourists, whose own beliefs often supplant or consume those of the original telling. The creation stories of predominantly Western European traditions—Greek, Norse, Irish, Basque, Bulgarian—but also Hindu, Native American, and elsewhere, all tell tha... Read more of this blog post »

Cold Counsel by Chris  Sharp
"Big, dumb, brutal fun. A troll fights his way up – and then down – a mountain, crushing idiot goblins all the way, no humans required. Not much world-building either, which I found impressive. Just a little bit of background on the mountain, the g..." Read more of this review »
