Christopher KunzFeatured Author
Christopher Kunz searches for the meaning of life and is fascinated by our short existence. When diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer, he decided to send his writing out into the world. He contemplates death, along with the graceful fall of a leaf, in his many personal essays. Now, with a closer horizon, his novels and essays seem prophetic. Christopher believes every story should have a happy ending and continues to write stories of hope and wonder, if a bit twisted.
Christopher balances the solitude of writing with the social nature of collaborative community politics. He currently serves as a city alderperson and recently finished twelve years as a school board member. He's been a lifelong project manager and problem solver, dissecting issues with a need to correct discrepancies.
When both of his parents died too young, Christopher decided to spend his time doing the things he loves. He embraced his fear of being a lonely writer and finally put his psychology degree to use making up stories. He likes to tag along with his characters, much as he did growing up the youngest of four. He seeks to find wonder and present it in a way that makes the joy of discovery accessible to everyone.
Originally from Minneapolis, Christopher has rediscovered community, living in the wonderfully approachable city of Neenah, Wisconsin with his lovely wife, wild gardens, and neglected lawn.
