Chris Ahrens Bio

Posted on October 14, 2014

In 1972 Chris Ahrens was a surfer living on a pristine beach in Australia and wondering if he was going to eat that day, or not. It was then he wrote his first story for a surf magazine and was rewarded with fifty American dollars. Having [metaphorically speaking] learned to fish, that piece led to thirty years of countess bylines in various newspapers and magazines and every major surfing publication in the world. This was followed by three popular books on surfing. Through years of interviewing surfers, Ahrens learned the skill necessary for his work in interviewing major celebrities for Risen Magazine.

After seven years as editor in chief of Risen, Ahrens wrote and directed the award-winning documentary D.O.P.E. (Death Or Prison Eventually). That in turn led to a contract with HarperOne to co-write the memoirs of legendary skateboarder, Christian Hosoi.

Ahrens works as a full-time writer and lives on the beach in Cardiff, California with his wife Tracy and their cat, Clara. Twilight in the City of Angels is his first novel.
