Chris Norbury is the award-winning author of the suspense-thriller Castle Danger. His new novel, Straight River, is the prequel to Castle Danger and the first book of a planned trilogy. The stories feature Matt Lanier, a southern Minnesota farm-kid-turned-professional-musician whose middle-class world is turned upside down by a conspiracy of powerful, ambitious, violent men.
This is his second visit to the NAC Art & Book Festival. He loves the camaraderie with the group of authors and the homey, small-town feel of the festival.
Chris grew up in the Twin Cities and earned a B.S. in Music Education at the University of Minnesota. He lives in southern Minnesota with his wife and golf clubs.
