Christopher Moore Author, A Dirty Job, You Suck

Christopher Moore is one of the Special Guests at Comic-Con 2011.

He is the New York Times bestselling author of 11 novels, including Lamb, A Dirty Job, You Suck, and Fool. Born in Toledo, Ohio, Chris attended Ohio State University and Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara. He moved to California when he was 19 and lived on the Central Coast until 2003, when he moved to Hawaii. He has since moved to San Francisco. Before publishing his first novel, Practical Demonkeeping, in 1992, he worked as a roofer, a grocery clerk, a hotel night auditor, an insurance broker, a waiter, a photographer, and a rock and roll DJ. Chris has drawn on all of these work experiences to create the characters in his books.

When he's not writing, Chris enjoys ocean kayaking, scuba diving, photography, and sumi-e ink painting. He divides his time between Hawaii and San Francisco.
