FULL BIO: Chris Howard was awarded a Publishers Weekly "Flying Start" in Fall 2012, following the release of his debut novel, ROOTLESS (Scholastic Press), which has been published in seven different languages to date. The follow-up, THE RIFT, came out on ARBOR DAY, April 25, 2014, and the final book of this fantastical sci-fi trilogy is due in Spring 2016, as will as a brand new story, NIGHT SPEED (Katherine Tegen Books, HarperCollins) which is out on May 3rd, 2016. Before he wrote stories, Chris wrote songs, studied natural resources management, worked for the National Park Service, and spent eight years leading wilderness adventure trips for high school students. He was born and raised in the UK, but now lives in Denver, CO, where he and his wife enjoy mountains, music, and mugs of good coffee.
Chris is represented by Laura Rennert of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency, as well as Lucy Stille at APA for film/TV rights, and Taryn Fagerness for print rights outside the US.
