Colorado native, Chris Richards, has been writing as long as she can remember and is eagerly waiting publication of her first novel, tentatively titled Shattered Trust.
As the Lifestyle Editor for the Sterling Journal Advocate newspaper, she was the liaison between schools and organizations and the paper. Being a teacher, leader, and event organizer for churches, swim teams, gymnastic teams, marching bands and women’s organizations were communication lessons under fire. More than thirty years teaching Christian education for all ages and nineteen years as a 4-H leader honed her speaking skills, teaching her to adapt her presentation to different audiences. Her writing includes novels, articles, manuals, Bible studies and journaling.
Chris is currently combining her loves of writing and of teaching to encourage young people to write. Passing the Quill guides aspiring authors as they commit thoughts to paper for themselves, their families, their friends, and the public. She is an active member of Toastmasters International, Words for the Journey Christian Writers Guild, American Christian Fiction Writers, and the Christian Writers Guild. Chris and her husband of forty years, Roy, live in Castle Rock, CO and enjoy spending time with their family, including three grandsons and one granddaughter.
Presentation length can be adjusted from brief messages to workshops and weekend retreats.
