Christopher Stevenson is not only an author, but also an attorney, a pilot, and a farmer. He lives on a farm in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, with his wife and five sons. Chris developed a new found love of history when he began to listen to books about the American Revolution on his commute to his law firm. He realized how many wonderful stories could be told about real events and people and how, as a kid, he had missed out on what history was really all about. Wanting his boys to hear and learn about some of the amazing people and events of the Revolution, Chris began telling his sons bed time stories about a boy named Gabriel Cooper. When they kept wanting more Gabriel stories, Chris decided to start writing his first historical fiction novel, The Drum of Destiny.
