Christopher R. Bartlett works in public relations, internal communications and human resources. He has spent his career ghostwriting speeches, press releases and policy memos. Finding ways to incorporate his passions into even his corporate work, he has developed and delivered projects ranging from scripts and skits, to digital training, to game apps. His favorite project was a strategy board game intended for 30,000 people. Beowulf (and the Bard) is his first published work. Bartlett lives in Georgia with his wife, Dr. Jennifer Bartlett. They are often joined there by one or more of their three children, whose own adventures are just beginning.
