Biography:

Chris Crutcher is a 56-year-old author and family therapist living in Spokane, WA. Though he was born in Dayton, OH on July 17, 1946, Crutcher grew up in Cascade, Idaho, a tiny logging town north of Boise. He graduated from Eastern Washington University, poured cement in Texas, taught high school in Washington, and ran an alternative school in Oakland, CA before he wrote his first book, RUNNING LOOSE in 1982.

Crutcher's fiction -- heavily influenced by his work as a therapist -- is known for its humor and its heart-breaking honesty. He has been honored with dozens of awards including the ALA's 2000 Margaret A. Edwards lifetime achievement award and the 1998 National Intellectual Freedom Award from the NCTE.
