Christian Bone is the writer of several short stories and flash fictions, as well as a recent recipient of a Creative Writing degree from the University of Winchester in the UK. Nearly all of his work plays with or revises pre-existing stories ranging from literary classics to fairy tales and, of course, mythology.
Things to Know About Christain:
-I currently reside on the Isle of Wight in the United Kingdom, a small place cut off from the rest of the country. It is somewhat like the Village from The Prisoner but without the sinister brainwashing (I hope).
-I possess an unhealthy obsession for all things Sherlock Holmes. So much so that I own three copies of the same book, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. We all do silly things when we’re in love.
-I have a fond memory of once meeting Neil Gaiman, a very nice man who greeted me as a ‘fellow writer.’ I’m still thinking of a way to put that event on a T-shirt.
-I’ve always had a great interest in writing, but for a brief time when I was younger, much to grown-up me’s disbelief, I wanted to go into football/soccer. It is a period of my life that I cannot explain.
-The first story I remember writing was about some kid detectives who stopped a pair of ghosts from stealing buried treasure. Clearly, I’ve never been one for genre boundaries.
