Chris is a local author who spent his early years in Ashington before moving to Newbiggin in his early teens.

After graduating from University in the early 90s he became an English language teacher living in Turkey, Portugal, India amongst other places. He returned to the UK in the late nineties and worked in education for over fifteen years. He left his role in 2015 to follow his dream and write a book. ‘Becoming’ is his first novel, with others on the way. Chris is also a musician and plays solo horn in Newbiggin Brass Band.

Chris will be talking about his journey to writing ‘Becoming’, some of the inspirations behind the novel, and providing useful tips on writing and publishing. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and purchase and/or get books signed.
