Chris Hauty

Chris Hauty is a graduate of Reed College, in Portland, Oregon. After a handful of years in New York City writing plays to modest success, he moved to Los Angeles and spent the next three decades employed in the movie business.

He was keen for more creative freedom (and less interference from the folks who write the checks) so pivoted to writing novels and hasn't looked back.

The father of two grown sons, Chris enjoys his tequila with a squeeze of fresh lime juice, motorcycle rides on country roads with abundant curves, and the company of spirited conversationalists. Lizards that populate his backyard are given free rein, while the same cannot be said about the gophers.
