I had such a great conversation with Chris Humphreys on this episode of the DIY Writers Podcast. Chris is a very creative and resourceful soul that has an endless number of stories to tell. We get into his process and thoughts on literature, self-publishing versus using a publisher, and also talk about his ability to create audiobooks. Just a great conversation with a great guy.

ABOUT CHRIS HUMPHREYS
Chris (C.C.) Humphreys was born in Toronto, lived till he was seven in Los Angeles, then grew up in the UK. All four grandparents were actors, and since his father was an actor as well, it was inevitable he would follow the bloodline. Chris has performed on stages from London's West End to Hollywood in roles including Hamlet, Caleb the gladiator in NBC's AD-Anno Domini', Clive Parnell in 'Coronation Street', PC Richard Turnham in 'The Bill', the Immortal Graham Ashe in 'Highlander', Jack Absolute in 'The Rivals' (This performance led to him writing the Jack Absolute novels - and they say acting doesn't pay!). Bizarrely, he was also the voice of Salem the cat in 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch'. A playwright, fight choreographer and novelist, he has written eleven adult novels including 'The French Executioner', runner up for the CWA Steel Dagger for Thrillers; 'The Jack Absolute Trilogy'; 'A Place Called Armageddon'; 'Shakespeare's Rebel' and the international bestseller, 'Vlad - The Last Confession'. He also fantasy: the Tapestry Trilogy consisting of 'The Hunt of the Unicorn', 'The Hunt of the Dragon' and 'The Hunt of the Shapeshifters' has just been published. And he is writing The Immortals' Blood Trilogy. 'Smoke in the Glass' and 'The Coming of the Dark' are both out, with 'The Wars of Gods and Men' coming in 2021. His novel 'Plague' won Canada's Arthur Ellis Award for Best Crime Novel in 2015. The sequel, 'Fire' is a thriller set during the Great Fire, published Summer 2016. Both novels spent five weeks in the top ten on 2016's Globe and Mail and Toronto Star Bestseller lists.
