Chris Berman to Speak Thursday, August 11

Chris Berman calls himself an accidental author.  He wrote his first novel, The Hive, while recovering from a biking accident.  He has since written Red Moon and Star Pirates, available at bookstores and online.  His fourth book, Das Bell, is awaiting publication. 

As a boy, Chris was influenced by science fiction authors such as Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke and John Campbell.  A neighbor and amateur astronomer further fueled his passion for science and astrodynamics, and he has been an avid follower of both the US and Russian space programs. 

Chris conducted a workshop at this year's UNF Writer's Conference and will be teaching a course there this fall.  He currently lives in St. Augustine with his wife and daughters.
