I've pursued countless career paths including prune and pistachio harvesting, deli worker, delivery van driver, accountant, archery arrow manufacturer, professional deck refinisher, ski instructor, Alaskan salmon fishery manager, bush plane outfitter, English tutor, managing editor for an academic journal, playwright, screenwriter, news columnist, publisher, and finally winemaker/owner of Rosalynd Winery, resisting the urge to write my first novel, The Good Life: A Chris Garrett Novel for as long as possible. When not busy with winemaking in the Napa Valley, I'm fast at work on the next Chris Garrett novel, The Perfect Vintage.
