Christopher Rice

USA flag (b.1978)
Son of Anne Rice

aka C Travis Rice

Christoper Rice comes from a family of authors. His parents are Anne Rice and the late poet Stan Rice; his aunt, Alice Borchardt, is a noted writer. He is also friends with fellow author Clive Barker. Rice fielded criticism that these connections, rather than his talent, resulted in the publication of his works. Unlike his famous mother, he does not write horror novels, but considers his books to be thrillers.

Rice has lived in New Orleans, Louisiana and is a 1996 graduate of the Isidore Newman School. Rice was in the same graduating class as American Idol finalist Judd Harris and noted poker expert Ed Miller. Rice went on to attend Brown University and the Tisch School of the Arts. He did not graduate from either school; instead, he moved to Los Angeles to explore writing screenplays.

Rice lives in Los Angeles, California.

Christopher Rice recommends
The Receptionist (2021)
Kate Myles
"Kate Myles takes no prisoners and leaves no skin on the bone. The Receptionist is a riveting and disturbing evisceration of twenty-first-century Hollywood greed and ambition. Überagents, self-improvement gurus, desperately ambitious actors—none of these denizens of sun-drenched Los Angeles are safe from Kate Myles’s scalpel-sharp pen."
God Machine (2020)
Greg F Gifune
"Gifune is the best writer of horror and thrillers at work today."
Last Writes (2010)
(Claudia Rose, book 4)
Sheila Lowe
"Fans of focused, fast-paced mysteries with smart female sleuths should get to know Claudia Rose."
