DMovies - Your platform for thought-provoking cinema

Chris Simpson

Writer

A multi-disciplined writer who, when not writing reviews, writes literary and crime fiction.


Chris grew up in Bracknell and Slough, which explains 90% of his choices. To pay the bills he has worked as a waiter, a cinema projectionist, a shoe salesman, an attendant in an amusement arcade, hiring out construction and demolition tools, a pasty seller, a caretaker for a primary school, a teaching assistant, a tutor and a facilities manager. He was a collaborator on a sketch show and has performed as a stand-up comedian.

His work has appeared in MainStream by Inkandescent Press, Seppuku Quarterly, Litro Magazine, STORGY Magazine, MIR Online and he was nominated for The Royal Academy and Pin Drop Short Story Award 2016. He is also an awardee for the inaugural Spread The Word’s London Writers Award and is a Pushcart Prize nominee.

Escaping into the world of film during mid-90s misanthropic suburbia, it is a love affair which continues to burn strongly. When not writing you can find him either reading, listening to records, drinking black coffee or continuing to leave the world outside by watching films. Terrible at sports he is an avid watcher of Leyton Orient, Toronto Blue Jays and the Ottawa Senators. You can read more about Chris Simpson by clicking here.
