Who is Christopher C. Dimond?


Writer. Biologist. Chainmaille Artisan.

I have a varied and eclectic background. Among other things, I've performed baroque dance, taught electrical and environmental classes, and studied multiple martial arts. Even the course to my PhD in Biology and Society was wide-ranging, with peer-reviewed publications on topics as diverse as the origin of dinosaur feathers, mitochondrial biology, and the philosophy of multilevel selection.

But through all of my experiences, I am and have been a storyteller and world builder.

As a child, I wrote scores of simple, single-page stories before started my first novella-length work when I was 12. By the time I was in college, I was writing my first fantasy series and more short stories, though I still viewed my fiction as an outlet for myself and the enjoyment of my friends and family. That didn't change until I was in graduate school, when I began investigating options for publishing my first fantasy novel while I was also developing ideas for a sci-fi series, The 28th Gate.

After finishing grad school, I worked briefly for the TCEQ, Texas's environmental regulatory agency, before I attended a workshop on self-publishing at the Houston Writers' Guild annual conference. Over the course of a few hours I learned just how much I still didn't know about publishing—and I realized it was a lot less than I'd worried. Emboldened by that affirmation, my wife and I started our own publishing imprint, and I turned to writing full-time so we could make the difficult mistakes with my own novels before we begin helping other writers publish theirs as well.

When I'm not writing, I'm probably wishing I was outdoors hiking or kayaking. I am also an avid gamer—be it video, board, or card games—and cook, and enjoy undertaking (and sometimes even finishing) home improvement projects or crafting intricate chainmaille jewelry and armor.

I live with my wife and infant son—who has a remarkable capacity for consuming the time I should be writing—in southeast Houston, just down the road from NASA.
