Christian Maitland-Smith hails from Auckland, New Zealand.
He has been writing on and off since the age of twelve. Christian
considers himself a student of life, and therefore enjoys
injecting the irony and less than occasional bleakness he
has observed and experienced into his writing, viewing the
expression of such sentiments/emotions more as a matter of
owning and therefore gaining power over pain and darkness
than one of maudlin wallowing. Christian is however aware
that when he falls under the influence of drink and cheesy
angst the latter looms dangerously close.
Christian is 25 years old, a Libran, and a born and bred
New Zealander. He has an undue fondness for Jamesons whiskey,
cigars, the writings of Lord Byron, Irish dance music, and
Black Sabbath among other odd and mismatched things. His tertiary
education has been sporadic but satisfying, and he is now
studying computing because he considers it a feasible way
to gain employment that will pay for his assorted vices. His
