ABOUT CHRIS TULLBANE

He currently lives in Nevada with his angelic wife and ever-expanding whisky collection and occasionally ventures outside to peer upwards, mutter to himself about ‘day stars’, and then scurry back into the house.

Chris is the author of two series; The Murder of Crows and The Many Travails of John Smith.
