“I’ve been a writer as long as I’ve known what writing is,” says Chris Queen. Blessed with a wild imagination and a desire to create, Chris writes prose, fiction, songs, and reviews, and he shares whatever is on his mind on his website, ChrisQueen.net.

Born in Marietta, GA, sometime in the 1970s, Chris has called Covington his home since he was five years old. A graduate of the University Of Georgia, Chris currently writes regularly for PJLifestyle and has also written for NewsReal Blog and Celebrations Magazine. He is Director of Communications at Eastridge Community Church, which his family helped found in 1989.

Chris is a fan of anything involving his beloved Georgia Bulldogs and is a Disney aficionado, having visited Walt Disney World over 25 times; he is also planning to take a trip to Disneyland hopefully sometime in next couple of years. He enjoys spending time with family and friends and especially spoiling his nieces Mackenzie, Kayla, and Hadley.

Here’s a fun Q&A about Chris:

Favorite Musical Artists/Bands: The Beatles (should be required listening), Bill Mallonee/Vigilantes Of Love (his songs are so personal, yet so easily identifiable), Melanie Penn (a brilliant singer-songwriter from New York), Explosions In The Sky (beautiful, expansive instrumental rock), Hillsong United (the best worship out there, hands down), Over The Rhine (simply amazing), Adele (her voice is second to none). I’ll be honest, I don’t listen to a lot of “Christian” music; I tend to prefer to hear from believers who make their music in the wider arena.

Favorite Movies: Apollo 13, On The Waterfront, High And Low (a 1962 Akira Kurosawa mystery)

Favorite Books/Authors: Flannery O’Connor, Lee Smith, Shusaku Endo, C. S. Lewis

Favorite TV Shows: Friday Night Lights, Homefront, Seinfeld, 24, Lost

What inspires you? I love to watch people worship, to see their response to the greatness of God. I’m also inspired by seeing my nieces grow and learn.

What did you want to be when you grew up (as a kid)? A game show host or a weatherman

What’s something new that you’ve learned about the Bible lately that has surprised you? I’m always surprised how God reveals new things to me in passages of scripture that I’ve read countless times.

If you could vacation anywhere…where would you go? Walt Disney World is part of my family’s traditions, so I guess my ideal vacation would be a money’s-no-object, deluxe trip to Disney World. Other than that, I’ve always wanted to go Japan or the British Isles.

  1. Chris,

    I subscribe to NRB and just read your article about the attacks on Christmas. I am also a songwriter, and a song of mine just got released this Christmas season. It’s called, “Let’s Keep Christ in Our Christmas This Year,” by Karmyn Tyler. Karmyn is a Grammy nominated, former Miss Louisiana and Miss American Talent Winner, and she did a great job on the song. My brother Ron and I wrote it in 2005 when I was first inspired by O’Reilly, who was standing up for traditional Christmas in a series of programs. It can be downloaded from iTunes, or at http://www.karmyntyler.com.

    I can also send you an MP3 if you’ll give me an alternate email address.

    BTW, you can read my testimony at my website, which is still under construction.

  2. Hi Chris, I did not know that you are a wonderful writer! I will be surfing through these each day. I am excited to read what you write each day. I wish you the best with everything.

  3. Hey Chris! I grew up in Covington, too! Went to Cousins and NCHS. I even think I remember having some classes with you back in Cousins, but I can’t be sure. Born in the 70s myself, so it would be possible, right? Anyway, love your work over at PJs. Keep up the good fight!
