Chris Ledoux outlined the concept that would become The Burnt Sunset novel as a teenager. He initially pursued a career as an engineer and a business owner. After a car accident left him struggling to read and write for almost two years, Ledoux resolved to become an author and The Burnt Sunset was born. Ledoux lives in New Hampshire with his wife and his three children. When he’s not writing, Ledoux spends time hiking with his dog Summer and creating art on his social media feeds to represent his vision of the apocalypse.
