Chris Williams grew up in Levittown, PA in the 1960s and early 70s. He has many fond memories of those years, including trips on the train to see the Phillies play at historic Connie Mack Stadium. His publishing credits include numerous short stories, feature articles and several books including his latest from Sunbury Press, “Stealing First and Other Old-Time Baseball Stories.”
Along with being a freelance writer, Chris is a Certified Level 3 Dog Trainer at a pet store in Hanover, PA. Chris was a radio announcer for 35 years on various stations but left the business to pursue his love of dogs as a trainer and to spend more time writing.
Williams loves to read and watch classic TV shows and movies. Some of his TV favorites include WAGON TRAIN, COMBAT!, PERRY MASON and COLUMBO. Far-and-away his favorite genre of movie is comedy, with a preference for the timeless laughs offered by Laurel and Hardy, the Marx Brothers and the Three Stooges.
Musically, Chris is stuck in the 60’s and 70’s and makes no apologies for it. He was never cool and stopped trying to be cool decades ago. Some of his favorite artists include The Beatles, Moody Blues, Temptations, Simon and Garfunkle, Petula Clark, The Seekers and The Monkees.
He and his wife Sue have lived in Central PA since the early 1990s.
