Chris Dolley

Chris Dolley is a New York Times bestselling author. He lives in rural France with his wife and a frightening number of animals. They grow their own food and solve their own crimes. The latter out of necessity when Chris’s identity was stolen along with their life savings. Abandoned by the police forces of four countries, who all insisted the crime originated in someone else’s jurisdiction, he had to solve the crime himself. Which he did, and got a book out of it – the international bestseller, French Fried: one man’s move to France with too many animals and an identity thief.

His SF novel Resonance was the first book to be plucked out of Baen’s electronic slushpile. And his first Reeves and Worcester Steampunk Mystery – What Ho, Automaton! – was a WSFA Award finalist in 2012.
