Thanks for stopping by the site. I’m the author of NIGHT SPEED, as well as the ROOTLESS trilogy, and though I was born and raised in the UK, I now live in the mile high city of Denver, Colorado. I spend a lot of my time writing but to take a break from the stories, I like to head out on adventures in my camper van, the Blue Elephant (featured on the homepage!). I take my mountain bike, my guitar, some good coffee, and head up into the hills with my wife and our dog and any friends we can convince to come along for the ride. So right now I’m most likely either staring in dismay at a computer screen, typing furiously with a smile on my face, or exploring the great outdoors.

Chris Howard was awarded a Publishers Weekly "Flying Start" in 2012, following the release of his debut novel, ROOTLESS (Scholastic Press), which has been published in eight different languages to date. Rootless was followed by THE RIFT, and the final book of the trilogy, THE RECKONING, while the standalone sci-fi thriller NIGHT SPEED (HarperCollins) was published in the summer of 2016. Before he wrote stories, Chris wrote songs, studied natural resources management, worked for the National Park Service, and spent eight years leading wilderness adventure trips for high school students. He was born and raised in the UK, but lives in Denver, CO, with his wife and their dog.
