Shore Leave, A fan run Science Fiction Convention
Christopher D. Ochs' foray into writing began with his epic fantasy Pindlebryth of Lenland.. Using his skills learned with the Lehigh Valley Storytelling Guild, he crafted a collection of mirthful macabre short stories, If I Can't Sleep, You Can't Sleep. His latest work is a gritty YA urban fantasy/horror, My Friend Jackson, Finalist in Indies Today’s Best Books of 2020. Several of his short stories have been published in the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group and Bethlehem Writers Group anthologies and websites, and Firebringer Press’ Meanwhile in the Middle of Eternity.
Chris has too many interests outside of writing for his own damn good. With previous careers in physics, electrical engineering and software, and dabblings as a CGI animator, classical organist, voice talent (Voice of OTAKON), it's a wonder he can remember to pay the dog and feed his bills.
