Detroit born author Christopher Laird is the rising science fiction writer on the scene. Mr. Laird has been reading and writing science fiction for almost 20 years. Although ORIGINS is his first novel, he wrote this thrilling sci-fi adventure when he was only 16.
Mr. Laird went on to college at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI to receive his psychology degree. He is currently pursuing his education to pursue a career as a psychologist. His novel was put on the back burner as he pursued a career in psychology. After moving nearly 8 times and getting involved in so many ventures throughout the years, his manuscript for ORIGINS remained in tact and traveled with him everywhere he went. As his manuscript was left undisturbed in his bedroom closet, one day Mr. Laird looked at it and decided that it was time to let the world know what ORIGINS is all about.
After doing a rewrite and changing a few aspects of the novel, Mr. Laird found a publisher to publish his book and released it out to the world.
