About Chris

I'm an award-winning blogger, freelance writer and author from Swansea.

I've written two popular sports books - my first, Swansea City's Greatest Games (Pitch Publishing, October 2014), is the ultimate journey through fifty of the Swans' finest matches. Read more about the book here.

My second book, The Swansea City Miscellany, was published in September 2015 and is a mini encyclopedia of Swans history, trivia, facts and stats. This is an official club publication and endorsed by chairman Huw Jenkins. Read more about the book here.

As a freelance writer, the main bulk of my day-to-day work is spent writing articles, web copy, press releases, and blog posts for businesses - on everything from beer and sport, to software and technology. You can see my current client list here. I also write editorially for several newspapers and magazines on everything from travel and food, to sport.

My sports writing journey began in 2010 when I created ForzaSwansea.com. This was named Best Sports Blog in Wales at the Wales Blog Awards 2012. Over the years the blog attracted hundreds of thousands of readers from across the globe and received national media attention. While I have now sold the site, I still blog about Swansea City for Yahoo! Sport.

Elsewhere I have been a regular contributor on food and drink for Metro, and have worked for several newspapers and magazines. I've also contributed editorial and opinion for print, websites and radio including: BBC Wales Sport, The Sunday Times, Goal.com, Swansea Sound and South Wales Evening Post.
