About Chris

Christopher Scott Silva currently heads up Client & Directory Services for one of the largest banks in Germany. From his early years as Area Manager for Commodore – pushing the Amiga into the European market – to the many tough years of IT project management for the US Government and US Air Force, Chris has been on the cutting edge of the IT industry. With over 10 years in IT-banking, to include Deutsche Bank and JP Morgan Chase, Chris’s hands-on style and charismatic management skills keeps him busy in the European IT scene.

Chris the Writer is currently working on his novella ‘A Galaxy Apart,’ a wonderful-fast paced science fiction experience, taking the reader into a exciting far away galaxy and swash buckling adventure. His recent horror ‘Dark Day’s in Sharma El Sheik’ is a frightening tale, with more twists and turns than a shrubbery labyrinth.

His short stories have us greedily glued to each word always wanting
more. One recent short that particularly sticks out in my mind is
Encounter, a micro short that simply entranced all his readers.

Chris Silva is definitely a writer to keep an eye on, with a bright and exciting future in the realm of sci-fi and horror.

‘Not only is Chris a great author, but also a true source of encouragement.
Indeed, his engagement as moderator for two of the most popular Writer sites on the internet (voted top one hundred world wide) and his inspiring work with young writers, offering guidance and editing
is an example for all of us who eke out a living with the written word’

    nice to read your short stories. When someone meet you I don’t know if he conjectures your passion.
    Keep it up, Martina

    Hello Chris,

    Just wanted to let you know I haven’t forgot you. Thank you for your help with my writing this past year. I wish you and your lovely family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    After things slow down … in January…I hope to spend some time reading your blogs and checking out Abandoned Towers. That site looks fabulous. I’m registered just so hard to find the time!

    Anyways…..miss you…….and your stories. Lurking is kept close to my heart. Every once in awhile I think of it, then I smile because I remember when you first posted it for review. Plus my own story…..beginnings of Karma…. which you helped to critique and got it reading so wonderful. Thank you for the gift of your time . I am eternally grateful.

    Merry Christmas Christopher Silva.
    Love Tina

      Hi Tina, thought I would say, hi. How are you and how is your writing going?

      Thinking of you and you son the writer,

        Hello Chris!

        Great to hear from you! Life has gotten in the way of writing, but I’m always working a story in my head. My son still writes, thanks for asking about him. How are you?…how’s your family? It’s really nice to hear from you—I was just saying to midnight candle how I miss the old gang on SSL and was wondering how you were doing. Then your e-mail popped up in my inbox! Love it when that happens. LOL I had a crazy-busy summer, including a trip to Las Vegas, but mostly working hard and too tired to write at night. I think I’m getting old Chris 🙂 Hope you don’t mind this long note on your blog…….your website looks terrific! Nice place you got here in cyberspace.

        Don’t be a stranger okay? Promise?
        Lots of love to you and yours,


  3. When reading this post it reminded me of something I read the other week, would there be any chance I could have the authors email address, Superb blog thanks for the infomation.

    Hey Chris,
    Hope all is well. Some time ago you reviewed some of my eary work on Oncewritten ning. Always constructive and honest and I always appreciated that. Thank you. I was the Robert E. Howard fan…the one with all the Savage Swords Of Conan collecting dust in an attic somewhere cold. Any way, thought I’d shoot you a line and let you know that i’ve kept at it and am currently working on a novella entitled Songbird Seven is Going Down. Sci-fi action, a bit darker than my other writings. When complete, I’d love to get your thoughts…though at the rate I’ve been writting recently, it might be a year from now. I’ll let you know when I post it on the web. Take care and keep up the GREAT WRITTING!

  5. Excellent blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Bless you!

    1. christophersilva

      Sal, WordPress is a good start. Most importantly write about things that interest you. that makes them believeable and fresh.

      Good luck


  6. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!

    Hello Chris! Look at you! This is awesome.
    I’m so proud of you, it’s as if you were my own brother.

    I’ve recently returned to My Writer’s Circle and was reading through some old threads in the forum and you came up in a banter that Gyppo, Mark, Ollie. Patti, and a few others were going about. It was quite comical. Suddenly, I found myself looking you up to see when your last post was and eventually following your links that led me here. I see that you are a busy and accomplished man.

    I hope you and your family are well.

    I can’t wait to see your books on the shelves. I’ve always enjoyed your writing and will send off for an autographed copy. Stop by and say “Hi” if you get the time but definitely let me know when you’re book is available.

    Always a pleasure to read your work and I’m happy to see that you are still a presence.

    Your Friend,
    AKA DGSquared at My Writer’s Circle
