Chris Borhani was born and raised in Michigan (USA), where he studied history at Michigan State University and earned a graduate degree from the University of Michigan. Since then, over the past two decades he has held faculty appointments as a lecturer of English at several universities in Turkey and South Korea. He currently lives in Greece.

Inspired by the past, Chris uses fiction as a way of exploring the mysteries of history by crafting stories built against the backdrop of thought-provoking questions. His first novel, The Elmesu Stone, was published in 2019.

In addition to writing fiction, Chris also shares articles on the archaeological sites he visits and photographs on the Rockpile Project website, which he created in January 2018 as a public resource for information about ancient sites of interest in Turkey, Greece, and beyond.

He is currently working on his second novel.
