Christopher T. Hamel – Omniscience

Christopher T. Hamel is a compulsive writer, animal lover, and paperback hoarder living in eastern Connecticut. He has an odd reputation for walking around town and reading a book at the same time—even in winter weather. In 2013, he took a creative writing course at Quinebaug Valley Community College in Danielson, Connecticut. He now spends his time sharpening his prose style. Due to his own struggles with mental health, most of his work involves at least one character with some neurological problems. Slated to be married by October of this year, he lives next door to his fiancée, Alyssa and her adorable guinea pig, Gizmo.
