C.C. (Chris) Humphreys

Chris Humphreys was born in Toronto and grew up in the United Kingdom. In 2010, he moved to Salt Spring Island with his family, where he writes in a large cedar octagon.

Chris’s career as an actor has taken him all over the world, from London’s West End to Hollywood. Salt Spring has enjoyed his talents on local stages and in outdoor summer productions.

Chris’ books have been translated into thirteen languages, and include The French Executioner, the 2002 runner-up for the CWA Steel Dagger for Thrillers. More recently, Plague won the 2015 Canada’s Crime Writers’ Association Best Crime Novel Award.

As well as his numerous historical fiction novels, Chris is also the author of four books for young adults: The Runestone Saga (three books) and The Hunt of the Unicorn – which is one of the ‘wooden books’ on display up high in the Salt Spring library!
