About this author
Chris Walter, a recovering drug addict and hope-to-die punk rocker, began writing
purposefully in 1998 after realizing that his life up to that point had been
His first published novel, Punk Rules OK went largely unnoticed except by
detractors, inspiring him to take a DIY approach to the game. With help from his
girlfriend who worked at a printing shop, he started GFY Press and began to write,
publish, and distribute a steady stream of fiction novels and music biographies.
After kicking drugs to the curb in 2001, GFY Press expanded to include unschooled
troublemakers Simon Snotface, Stewart Black, and an Australian, Drew Gates, drawing
further criticism from the established literary industry. More than sixteen years
later, Chris Walter and GFY Press remain unrepentant and committed.
Chris is the author of more than twenty-four books, many of which are available
electronically. He has also contributed to numerous publications including The
Georgia Straight, Nerve, Razorcake, The Big Takeover, Mass Movement, Vice, Loud Fast
Rules, and Absolute Underground.
