Joining the Fun

Hello fellow readers!

This is my first time participating in this blog--and I'm honored to be a part! To dive into things, I thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Christopher Maselli and I've been a writer for a little more than 10 years. While I love to write about anything that comes my way, my favorite writing is for middle-grade and YA novels. You can see some of my books on my website, Most of them are humorous action/adventures.

Currently, I'm also getting my Masters in Fine Arts in Writing for Children. This is mainly because I'm insane. It's quite a rigourous program and I'm sure many of my posts will be concerned with my struggles and insights related to it.

In my spare time, I've taken up learning to play the electric guitar. I've only been at it a few months now, but I'm having a blast and it's certanily nice to have another art you can jump into when you need inspiration or just need to "get away from it all." If you're really bored, you can follow my progress at

It's only apropos that I start blogging today since it's my birthday! I'm 34 today which is quite jolting because now I'm officially older than Jesus. We're going out for fajitas (I live in Texas and they're quite a delicacy here). :) I think my wife and 11-month-old daughter have some other fun things planned, too.

Anyway, I'm pleased to be a part of the gang and look forward to comments from readers and friends.

Welcome, Chris, and Happy Birthday!Can you play the birthday song on the electric guitar yet? If not you have one month to practice before your daughter turns one. I play the kazoo.
I hope our paths cross again sometime. I would love to cuddle your little one. I am majoring in grandma. I have my BA in Grandmother. And am working on my masters.

So, I bet you know all the words to "Eye of the Tiger?"
