Christopher Ruz tells lies for money. Teacher, designer, and one-time stuntman (don't ask), Christopher Ruz is a rabid fan of fantasy, science fiction, body horror and crime thrillers. Born in Hong Kong to well-travelled parents, Ruz was fortunate enough to live in South Africa and Vienna before returning to live and work in Australia. His love of dark fiction began when a worn copy of Pet Semetary caught his eye at a local fleamarket. He bought it with his pocket money and hid it under his bed so his parents wouldn't see. He was eight years old, and has been off-kilter ever since. Ruz can also do twelve chinups. Neat!

His best known works are The Ragged Blade and his ongoing horror series Rust. Meanwhile, he publishes the Olesia Anderson series of pulpy spy novellas under the pseudonym D.D. Marks. He has sold stories to Andromeda Spaceways and Apollo's Daughters, & was a finalist in the 2017 Aurealis Awards. He is currently querying a scifi novel about refugee siblings stealing an AI from a wartorn planet.
