A full-time drug addict and hope-to-die punk rocker, Chris Walter began writing purposefully in 1998 after realizing that his life up to that point had been largely meaningless. 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 works at a printing shop, he started GFY Press and began to write, publish, and distribute a steady stream of fiction novels and music biographies. There is no shortcut to success. After kicking drugs to the curb in 2001, Chris expanded GFY Press to include unschooled troublemakers Simon Snotface, Stewart Black, Drew Gates, and Ali Kat, drawing further criticism from the established literary industry. More than twenty-nine titles and twenty years later, Chris Walter and GFY Press remain unrepentant and committed.
