Christopher Grant was born and raised in the heart of Brooklyn, NY. He did his undergraduate and graduate work at Stony Brook University, receiving degrees in Economics and Human Resource Management (as well as a minor in John Madden Football for the Playstation).
Christopher was inspired to write from a female’s perspective after reading an article about publishers looking for men writing as women. “I grew up in a household that was dominated by strong female influences. My mother and three aunts, each with their own unique temperament and assortment of quirks, had a profound affect on me as a child. After reading that article, I figured who better than me than to write that kind of story?”
Christopher currently works as an equities trader and lives in Harlem, NY. He spends his free time reading, writing, playing basketball, and traveling the world with his wife and family.
