Christopher Katava was born and raised in the northwest edge of Los Angeles. Living near a park with a magical small stream and an abundance of open space provided him a deep appreciation for nature and led him to start writing some pretty bad poetry at a young age. He’s managed to improve in that department but his main focus is writing short, slice of life fiction and full length novels covering many different genres. Christopher’s life path has shown him glimpses of a spiritual unity and respect for all life. He’s developed a special bond with the big cats and spends some of his free time giving educational tours where he shares the risk of extinction these majestic animals face. He currently lives in the Colorado foothills where he plays a never ending game of tag with his collection of muses and hopes to one day live near a stream again.
