Chris Irvin has traded all hope of a good night's sleep for the chance to spend his mornings writing dark and noir fiction, and comics. He is the author of Burn Cards and Federales, as well as short stories featured in several publications, including Thuglit, Beat to a Pulp, and Shotgun Honey. His collection, Safe Inside the Violence, is out this November from 280 Steps. He lives in Boston, MA with his wife and two sons.
