Chris has successfully completed his B.A. in History / American Studies at Liverpool Hope University College where he gained a 2:1 Certificate. “Studying history and literature has benefited my fiction writing no end. Especially from a research point of view” he says. “My time at Hope was amongst the most rewarding and happiest of my life.” Chris completed his MA in 2006 at Liverpool John Moores University and is now a regular contributor to many magazines, including The Radio Times, Writing Magazine and Writers' News, as well as offering a promotional service for authors and other artists. “There are opportunities opening up that just would not have materialised were it not for the M.A.

Some tales based on the songs of Chris de Burgh.

So, you may be asking, why the title of 'Untrained Melodies'?
Well the 'Untrained' I got from Chris de Burgh's hit song Spanish Train and, as I've played around with the content a little of all the songs that I've chosen here as inspiration, Untrained seemed to fit ideally. As forthe 'Melodies', I've tried to be as rhythmic as possible in the writing of the Tales, so as to mirror the natural tempo of the original melodies. This despite the fact that the Tales are derived from, rather than based upon, the original songs themselves. I have tried to bring my personal interpretation to Chris de Burgh's work and I hope that you - his fans - will be as pleased with the results as I am.
