From a young age, Christopher Markland has always had a love for reading. Whether it was a novel or an encyclopedia, he would read it. After many years of tossing around different ideas for a novel, he finally decided to follow his passion and jump into the world of contemporary African-American fiction with his debut novel, Desperately Seeking Exclusivity.
Born in Clarendon, Jamaica, Christopher moved to the United States to Albany, Ga at the age of 10. He moved to Decatur, Ga where he graduated from Columbia High School. After graduating, he joined the US Army where his love of traveling developed when he had the opportunity to live in several different states across the country. After leaving the service, he earned his commercial driver’s license and was able to see even more of the country as a commercial truck driver.
Christopher currently lives in the Atlanta area with his family where he is currently working on the third novel in the Desperately Seeking anthology.
