I hope that you enjoy your visit to this, my very own writing showcase. There are several of my pieces to read under the Chris High Other Tales links. There are also Reviews of books, movies, albums and theatre presentations - past and present – alongside a Links Page that has useful resources for the aspiring writer.

There are also many other features, such as the section dedicated to Chris De Burgh, without whose support the Untrained Melodies project would never have been as successful as it has been.

Please take a moment, too, to sign the Guest Book. But, for now, kick off your shoes, get comfy and browse awhile. Link to Facebook

Derren Brown - 'Enigma' Tour 2010' REVIEWED HERE

“Thank you for the wonderful note, the tremendous review, and for giving me the opportunity to discuss my work on your excellent site.  I am really flattered by, and grateful for, your support.  It's particularly a stressful time, waiting for the reactions to one's second novel.  I know that I wrote a different kind of haunting story, and I know that it will not be embraced by every reader.  But I tried to do something unique, and personal, and I am proud of the book.  That you have embraced it and given it an extra opportunity to be embraced by others means a lot.”
Christopher Ransom - author of 'The Haunting of James Hastings' . REVIEWED HERE

"Dear Chris,
Just a quick note to thank you for your fantastic review of 'American Devil'. Can't believe you loved the book so much, but it was brilliant to read your inspiring and very kind comments. I hope it inspires other people to pick up the book. The review created a great deal of excitement for everyone involved in publishing the book and, personally, it is great encouragement to me as a debut author fighting his way through book two. All in all, a big thank you from me!"
Oliver Stark - author of 'American Devil' . REVIEWED HERE

“Dear Chris, Thanks very much for the great review of King Cotton.
I've just been trying to keep a record of reviews etc. so I spotted yours whilst googling - we're working towards a nationwide tour in spring next year after some refinements and hopefully it will come back to The Empire - I thought the set looked particularly great in that old theatre.... Best wishes and thanks again.
Ian Brownbill & Jimmy McGovern - authors of 'King Cotton'. REVIEWED HERE

Image Link: 'The Great Escape' by Chris High can be read on Mersey Minis: Longing“As a playwright I've received critique from various media outlets over the years. Reviews are part of my profession - some have been positive, some negative - but each have been received with dignity and respect. However....that respect is magnified tenfold when the critic is, balanced, constructive, and more importantly...has a literary background. Chris High is all these things. Although known nationally through Stage magazine and as an author we are fortunate that he is based here in the northwest reviewing all forms of art and culture in our two great cities, Liverpool and Manchester. In literary circles he is rapidly becoming one of the most respected critics around with his balanced views on all forms of diverse art, both profound and populist. As 2008 approaches it is a great comfort to know that Chris will be immersed in all the arts during Liverpool's capital of culture year. To be endorsed by, Alan Bleasedale and Jimmy McGovern is testimony to somebody who is well respected within the industry.”
Dave Kirby writer of 'Brick Up the Mersey tunnels' and 'Lost Soul'.
