Kristopher Mallory is a married, father of two, from Glen Burnie, MD. He is the owner of Stealthfiction.com a website which is finding it’s voice as an indie-publisher.
Kristopher Mallory has no interest in mastering kung fu or underwater basket weaving, but he does enjoy throwing out the occasional random non sequitur. As for favorite animals, he’s a big fan of sloths and hedgehogs. In fact, he once owned a hedgehog named Princess Pokey. He hasn’t devised a plan to obtain a sloth…yet.
When it comes to writing, Kris enjoys horror and sci-fi. He’s actively trying to be a gooder writer and hopes to one day join the SFWA. Another focus is the Daylight Dims horror anthology, and Stealth Fiction publishing.
Outside of writing, he traveled the world while serving as an aircrew member in the Air Force and currently works in I.T. around the D.C. area. He lives with his Wife, Son, Daughter, German Shepherd, Golden Retriever, Beta fish, an imaginary Easter Bunny, and with luck someone will give him a Sloth.
As an editor on the Daylight Dims project, he has gained experience as a content editor.
Kris’ first foray into publishing happened when he was nine. He convinced a friend that they could make a ton of money by creating their own video game review magazine and then sell it to the kids at school. His job as a young co-editor ended suddenly when the guy at the printing shop explained you can’t just cut out information and pictures from other magazines to include in your own. Doh! Being the undeterred kid that he was, his subsequent attempts at making and marketing printed material included a cook book series for zombies and a comic book series about stickmen dying in various fashions. Sadly these literary master pieces have been lost to the ages. Even so, the desire to join the publishing world has stuck with him though out the years.
With the re-launched Stealthfiction, Kris implemented his philosophy of freely sharing premium short works of fiction. Most of the fiction found on the site can be downloaded under a Creative Commons License as a PDF or ePub. At the same time, digital versions of those stories can be found on Amazon, iBook, and other retailers through Smashwords. If people like a story they should be able to share it and if they like it enough to contribute then the option to purchase is still there.
Kris is an experienced ebook formatter capable of laying out a book capable of passing ePub check and Smashword’s Meatgrinder.
