Christopher Long

Writer (Palm Bay, FL, USA)
- Raised in Missouri’s rugged Ozark Mountains and on Florida’s sunny Space Coast, Chris is a celebrated author, show biz analyst, award-winning musician, entertainment personality and international missionary. Known for his conversational, common sense writing style, Long has been called everything from “a pathetic loser” to “the most interesting man in the world.” He believes wholeheartedly that if embroiled in a drunken barroom brawl, the chick from In This Moment would kick the livin’ shit out of the dudes from Mötley Crüe. He further insists that he’s the biological father of the weird kid on Stranger Things.
