The books will be a series of novellas, three of which will be released in 2011. Writing on the first novella, "BULLIED," is finished and Christopher now is working on "REVENGE," the second book in the series. Shortly, he'll begin writing the third book, "REDEMPTION," and then he will turn his focus on a new adult thriller for a 2012 release.

His Wall Street thriller, "Running of the Bulls," is finished and it goes to his agent the week of April 11, 2011. It will be sent to a bidding war soon thereafter.

"BULLIED" is the first novella in THE BULLIED SERIES, which focuses on Seth Moore, a relentlessly bullied 17-year-old boy who is gifted an amulet that ignites within him telekinetic powers.

If Seth uses the amulet properly, it will protect him from those determined to crush him. But after so many years of being beaten down and humiliated by the school's popular crowd and the teachers who protect them, the question is whether Seth can keep away from the dark side the amulet offers--and not become a bully himself.

At first, he's able to control the amulet and use it to warn key students to keep away from him. But when an organized group of A-list students decide to come after him and his family, all hell breaks loose as the amulet's darkness consumes him.

BULLIED is an intense thriller that will speak volumes to anyone who has been bullied and wished they had a powerful way out. Further, it's a cautionary tale on the act of bullying.

The series contains violence and language appropriate for a PG-13 rating.

Christopher supports every campaign and effort to stop bullying and for creating a safe environment for children and young adults of all ages. The book will likely touch a nerve with those who unfortunately know Seth's story too well.

This series of books is for them.
