For me, fiction writing is a means to explore the human spirit, so I create characters as real as you or I and observe them in dire conflicts with one another—the action that follows requires these ordinary men and women to do extraordinary things.
My third novel, Girl Out Of Darkness, is now available in both 6 X 9 paperback and digital formats. Kirkus Reviews had this to say about the novel: "A crime drama sustained by gimlet-eyed, sometimes-poetic psychological insight . . . Drawing deeply from a rich tradition of hard-boiled detective fiction, Christ's novel is unsentimentally realistic as it bravely tours the dark corridors of the human soul. A gripping story told with verve and intelligence."
I have also written non-fiction books, published by Prentice-Hall and Sterling, and I have penned several pedagogical articles and political opinion pieces. I hold a degree in Literature and Writing from the University of Arizona, as well as two masters’ degrees. I taught writing, literature and history in Arizona secondary schools for twenty-five years. I live with my wife Mary in Tucson, and my fiction is grounded vividly in the Arizona borderlands.
