VJ Books Presents Author Christopher Ransom!

Author Christopher RansomChristopher Ransom was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado, and has lived in New York and Los Angeles. After studying literature at Colorado State University, he won citations for outstanding customer service at the world famous McGuckin Hardware, and later managed Bushmaster Reptiles, an international wholesale importer of exotic species.
 
At the age of 25, Chris and his soon-to-be wife Pia moved to New York City for two years, where he worked as an ad sales assistant at Entertainment Weekly, and later as a sales executive for Screaming Media. Approximately six months prior to the firm going public, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a screenwriting career. There he sold not a single screenplay, but continued to ride the dot-com wave, managed a Barnes &; Noble store, and freelanced as a copywriter.
 
In 2004, with their three rescued pound mutts"Cowboy, Nacho, and Tater-Tot"in tow, Chris and his wife relocated to Mineral Point, Wisconsin. Working as a copywriter for Famous Footwear in Madison, Chris spent the next three years conceiving and delivering his first novel, The Birthing House.  In January 2009, The Birthing House reached #6 on the London Times list of fiction paperback best-sellers, and was later translated into German and Italian.
 
Among his heroes and influences, Christopher Ransom counts authors of genre-bending dark literature such as Dan Simmons, Stephen King, Clive Barker, and Jack Ketchum, as well as masters of urban and suburban noir such as Peter Blauner, Colin Harrison, Tom Perrotta, James Salter, and Pete Dexter.
