Hi there, my name is Chris Ringler and I am a writer living in Flint, Michigan. I have been writing since I was sixteen and really became serious about it when I was eighteen. I got my start writing short stories and then writing articles and editing ‘zines, which lead to a magazine called GHOULASH that my friends and I had and eventually lead to it going national for an issue.
While I worked on the ‘zines I got more serious about writing and put together a collection of stories entitled BACK FROM NOTHING that was released in ’99. That book is a collection of stories that are dark tales about the worst places of the heart.
Since that time I have finished a novel I am trying to get published, have put together some ash cans, and have written several dozen stories.
In the last year I have developed a love for painting and photography as well and am having fun developing those skills.
In June of 2009 I released my second book of short stories entitledTHIS BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS. This collection is a mix of stories that shine more light into the dark places of the heart and shows that human monsters are sometimes the most horrifying of all. Along with the stories, there are some of my photos in the book as well.
April 2010 saw the release of THE MEEP SHEEP, a book of fairy tales in the spirit of The Brother’s Grimm but with a less influence on being grim. These are stories I have been working on for a while which I really think you’ll love. These are stories set in a kingdom where magic has been the one thing to unite and keep the people happy but on the dawn of an age where art and magic must live together, the people begin to fear that the forces of darkness may finally win out. It will take friends who have yet to meet banding together to fight this darkness and to bring happiness back to the people.
I am a writer, artist, and photographer and am working to nurture all of those loves. I also love movies, love the arts, love to work with people, and am a huge nerd at heart.
I have been published in Cthulhu Sex Magazine, and have appeared in Bare Bone three times.
I have also received honorable mention in two editions of The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror

In 2009 I published a new short story collection entitled This Beautiful Darkness and it is ten dollars and for sale through Amazon (which also sells an e-book version) or here -
2010 brings the release of my new book The Meep Sheep which is a collection of fairy tales that serve as a novel of short stories set in the Kingdom of Man. I am super proud of this book. It’s completely different from anything I have done before, and yet reflects the worlds I write about. The Meep Sheep is twelve dollars.
It’s a new year and that means new work. I have launchedmeepsheep.com, a place you can easily order the book, the e-book, and can find links to my other work. I also have to books that will release this year. First up is Red Dreams, a dark short story collection. Later in the year I will release a follow-up to The Meep Sheep. It will be super fun.
The stories of the people, the places, and the things that made the Lands of Man what they are. This is a grim fairy tale.
