Chris Grabenstein was born in Buffalo, New York. At the age of ten he moved to Signal Mountain Tennessee and attended Chattanooga's Notre Dame High School. He studied journalism and theater at college and then moved to New York City. For five years, he performed and won awards with some of the city's top Improvisational Comedy troupes, making up scenes and songs on the spot in front of live audiences, just like they did on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" When not writing scripts for his friends to perform in the small Greenwich Village theatre, Chris also wrote for Jim Henson's Muppets.
In 1986, he and his college buddy Ronny Venable wrote a TV movie for CBS called The Christmas Gift. It starred John Denver and can still be seen almost every year during the holidays, usually on the Hallmark Channel. Chris also spent close to twenty years writing radio and television commercials for Burger King, Seven Up, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Dr Pepper, and many, many others. Grabenstein won the Anthony Award for best first mystery for his first adult mystery Tilt A Whirl.
The other books in that mystery series have received all sorts of critical praise are called Mad Mouse, Whack A Mole, he'll Hole, Mind Scrambler and Rolling Thunder. In 2012 Chris collaborated with James Patterson on the book I Funny: A Middle School Story, which made The New York Time's Best Seller List. Chris is also the author of bestselling children's book Escape from Mr. Lemonchello's Library.
How serious is stage fright? At the Hanging Hill Playhouse, it can kill you.
After narrowly escaping a malevolent spirit in The Crossroads, Zack and Judy are hoping to relax during the rehearsals for a show based on Judy’s bestselling children’s books. Little do they know that the director is planning to raise a horde of evil specters from the dead, and to accomplish this, he needs a human sacrifice... and Zack fits the bill perfectly.
This second book featuring the intrepid Zack and his stepmother, Judy, is full of the same humorous and spine-tingling storytelling that has made Chris Grabenstein a fast favorite with young and old alike.
