Kris Murray is 34 years old and currently resides in Folsom California. He regularly attends weekly worship services at a non-denominational church where he helps out with music, playing violin and viola. He is also a member of Bible Study Fellowship where he volunteers teaching the Bible in the children’s program.
As a boy, he enjoyed writing and wrote numerous short stories. His mother, being a librarian, has always encouraged him to write and saved many of his school writing assignments. And now he can share them with his own six year old son to provide encouragement.
He read classic books like the Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia and was fascinated by the worlds created by J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. More recently, reading books like “The River God” by Wilbur Smith provided Kris with additional insight into the relevant time period for the book.
In addition to writing and playing music, Kris, his wife, and son, enjoy biking and hiking in the outdoors at the many natural wonders local to Northern California and beyond.
