Chris S. Hayes is a science fiction romance writer. Her first novel, entitled Sikkiyn, was released on November 26, 2014 by Solstice Shadows. A native of Lafayette, Louisiana, Chris spent half of her youth reading science fiction and the other half reading romance novels. When she's not spending every moment of her free time trying to meld her two favorite literary genres into a form that people will want to read, she works as a college health physician. Her patients keep her alert, adaptable, and forever young. Now that her first novel has been accepted for publication, she is busy working on the sequel.
