About Kris St.Gabriel

I am a tiny-bit internet famous for creating wrongcards, a wonderfully silly ecards website that’s been around since 2008.

I also write novels. That’s the main thing. If you found me via wrongcards, then you owe it to yourself to pick up one of my books. They’re much funnier.

Most of all, I suggest subscribing to my newsletter. (Check out some of the recent newsletters here).

If you’d like to support me – buy my books!, and leave a review at Amazon. I seriously appreciate that. Anyway, on with the story.

The Story So Far

I grew up in mostly small rural towns in Queensland, Australia. I attended a dozen schools, then went to Griffith University to read lots of books. After graduating I became a full-time vagabond. I drifted around the world for many years and was often homeless. For half a year I lived in a mate’s garage. It was very romantic; I woke up every day covered in ants.

After a few years in Germany and Austria I found myself in Boston, where I was hired by Harvard University to fix computers. At the end of 2007, I was invited to join a lab at Harvard as a scientific programmer. That was bit tricky because I’m an autodidact and not especially talented at science, but I made a go of it anyway.

In my free time I dabbled in graphic design, illustration and web-development. After spending a few years as a really mediocre scientist, I took a job as a creative director in the same lab I’d been working in the past few years.

In 2013, I quit Harvard to write books full-time. I have completed two novels — The Harvard Skull Fiasco and Rise of the Blue Bandicoot. I hope these books are well-received because they effectively euthanize any future employment prospects that I might once have enjoyed.

I have two small children and lived, until recently, in a ramshackle house in Cambridge, Massachusetts; we now live in the western suburbs of Brisbane in Australia.

When not writing I am telling somebody to put on a coat, or to take a breath, or use their words, or to please … take one … more … bite. In my spare time I locate socks.
