Christopher Husberg grew up in Eagle River, Alaska, where he enjoyed hiking and camping in the Last Frontier, but only during the three and a half months when there wasn’t snow on the ground. The rest of the year provided ample opportunity to play Warcraft, Starcraft, and Final Fantasy, and read stories by J.R.R. Tolkien, Brian Jacques, Roald Dahl, Susan Cooper, and T.A. Barron. In high school he transitioned to authors like Robert Jordan and George R.R. Martin, where he fell in love with Westeros, like, a whole decade before it was cool.
Chris first attempted the writerly life in elementary school when he tried his hand at Redwall fan fiction. It wasn’t good. His Final Fantasy fan fiction in middle school didn’t improve much, and when he tried writing his own novel in high school he decided it was way too hard and played a lot of video games and pretended to snowboard instead, though his fascination with writing still festered.
Chris suffered a brief obsession with ballroom dancing while attending BYU, eventually performing across the country with the Ballroom Dance Company Touring Team. But, inevitably, his writing obsession re-emerged. He finished his first novel, Duskfall, while taking a year off and teaching ballroom dance at a local studio.
In 2010 Chris was accepted into BYU’s MFA Creative Writing program, where he somehow managed to convince the English Department to let him teach some composition and creative writing courses. He terrorized college freshmen and beginning writers with pleasure.
While Chris learned about the art of writing from his MFA, he learned about the business and the craft by taking classes from Brandon Sanderson. With Brandon’s help, Chris realized that he could do what he loved and maybe even make a living at it if he put in the proverbial blood, sweat, and tears. Living that dream is working out well for him so far.
Chris currently lives in Provo, Utah, where he spends his time writing, reading, writing, hiking, writing, gaming, watching tv and films, writing, and hanging out with his wife, Rachel, and daughter, Buffy. When the writing gets tough, he considers resorting to another master’s degree, or heaven forbid a PhD, at whatever university will let him concentrate on gender and pop-culture studies in the television show Buffy the Vampire Slayer…but then he remembers how much he loves what he does, and writes some more.
Chris writes dark epic fantasy novels and is currently the fifth and final book of his series, the Chaos Queen Quintet. (Duskfall, Dark Immolation, Blood Requiem and Fear the Stars are available now, and the final volume, Dawnrise, will be available in June of 2020).
