Christopher grew up in Buffalo, NY for most of his youthful years. At the age of 16, he was determined to take on the world and started the steps he needed to take to become successful on his own. When he was 18 he rode his bicycle 10 ½ hours from Buffalo, NY to Geneva, NY to meet a girl he met online for the first time in person. At the age of 19, he married her and they now have 3 children and are still happily married. His wife Carolyn, though supportive, was sceptical of him becoming an author because he "never finishes any project he starts."
