A man who writes romances, a self-starter who self-publishes and a dreamer who thinks growing old should take longer
Christopher Lentz writes stories about how love changes everything.
He loves living on the edge—of a continent that is. Having enjoyed far too much of Southern California’s endless-summer sun and survived the onslaught of office life, he decided it was time for an extreme career makeover at age 50. He’d made his mark as a corporate marketing executive before he began writing novels. He burst onto the historical-romance scene in 2015 with his debut love story, Blossom.
He didn’t always love words (in fact, he still has scars from those stand-up-in-front-of-class spelling bees that he was an epic failure at), but did learn to master words out of necessity. He was convinced there was a novel hiding somewhere inside him. With the help of some imaginary friends, he found it. Now his work is touted as Dan Brown meets Downton Abbey after surviving Titanic.
His first literary crush was Scarlett O’Hara. Then came Dorothy Gale, Jo March, Lizzie Bennet and Blanche DuBois. And truth be told, an infatuation with Mary Poppins transpired. Yes, Mary Poppins.
He loves—and devours—anything related to Disney like a ravenous kid inhales a bowl of Cap’n Crunch. It was a dream come true when he spent his college years immersed in Disneyland’s turn-of-the-century Main Street USA selling everything from sticky lollipops to iconic Mickey Mouse ear hats. That experience resulted in a fascination with all things Victorian/Edwardian, not to mention a hoarder-status collection of antiques.
A teenage transplant from Detroit, he married his high-school sweetheart and raised three remarkable daughters and two adorable Yorkshire terriers.
As an active member of Romance Writers of America, this late bloomer looks forward to writing a bookshelf full of novels about misfits who find ways to fit in. He’s currently working on his latest book, swimming for his life in research whirlpools and listening intently to the voices in his head.
He’s convinced love changes everything. Always has. Always will.
