Chris in the GrenadinesFrom the sea to the stars, Chris A. Jackson’s stories take you to the far reaches of the imagination. Raised on the back deck of a fishing boat and trained as a marine biologist, he became sidetracked by a career in biomedical research, but regained his heart and soul in 2009 when he and his wife Anne left the dock aboard the 45-foot sailboat Mr Mac to cruise the Caribbean and write fulltime.

With his nautical background, writing sea stories seemed inevitable for Chris. His acclaimed Scimitar Seas nautical fantasies won three consecutive Gold Medals in the ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Awards.  Pirate’s Honor, Pirate’s Promise, and Pirate’s Prophecy, Pathfinders Tales from Paizo Publishing, combine high-seas combat and romance set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Not to be outdone, gaming publisher Privateer Press released Blood & Iron, a swashbuckling novella set in the Iron Kingdoms.

Chris’ repertoire also includes the award-winning and Kindle best-selling Weapon of Flesh Series (Weapon of Flesh, Weapon of Blood, Weapon of Vengeance, Weapon of Fear), as well as five additional fantasy novels, the humorous sci fi Cheese Runners trilogy of novellas, and short stories.
