She would often ask him what he was thinking or why he was so quiet. He frequently heard that he did not show emotions and he took life far more serious than others. At the onset, Chris resorted to writing his partner poetry. As time evolved, he would create simply to express himself or to help his partner simplify the enigma which he often portrayed. Eventually, he would create as a method of finding serenity, motivation, or self-reflection. While going through, the rites of passage of his storied life, he realized that he had a unique gift. The relationship has fizzled, although his passion burns brightly.

After a near death experience, Chris was inspired to start writing. He has written over two-hundred poems. He writes from his heart, mind, and soul. Chris' writing has been known to move people. He feels that this is fitting, as he writes about anything that moves him. 

Join him on his amazing journey and follow him to his culmination!

Thank you,

D. Christopher Harvey

The Poet 
& The Poem
After reading my book, the man said "I'm shocked, you don't look like a writer."

I asked him what does a writer look like?

Did the man with the pale skin and the small frame look like one of the greatest entertainers in the world?

Did Michael Jordan look like a dominating champion, when his high school coach told him that he was not good and probably would never make it very far!

Did Emmett Perry, Jr. look like he would be one of the most successful playwrights ever, when he was homeless?

Did Oprah look like she would own a network and become a billionaire when her critics told her that she didn't fit the mold?

Did Eric Bishop look like an Oscar Award-winning actor when he was known as Wanda?

I thought about it and told him writers don't have a certain look.

We don't fit a certain mold but we are known to have one thing in common.

A writer is one who has the ability to express his or her thoughts in a written form rather it be fiction or non-fiction.

I then, clarified to the confused young man and closed by saying...
"I'm not just a writer, I'm an AUTHOR!"

He smiled and responded "Yes you are, I love your work, and I would like to buy another copy of your book!"

About the Author

D. Christopher, or Chris, is a humble, quiet, confident, gentle man. From birth, he was classified as a shy or introverted person. Many times, when it was necessary to speak, he would remain silent because he was always looking for the right time or perfect line. A tragic event took place, early in his life, which caused him to go deeper into a shell.

He did not speak about the incident for almost three years. He became a loner and kept many things to himself. Ironically, he found solace in writing and acting. He eventually realized that 
he had a knack for creating word play. His love for words, easily detecting grammatical errors, and sentence structure catapulted him into his passion for writing poetry.

Chris started seriously writing poems while involved in a 
whirlwind relationship. The relationship consisted of every emotion that two people could display. His partner was outgoing, talkative, approachable, friendly and was liked by most. She would

This is one great poetry book. I've read it several times and still can't get enough. There are quite a few poems I can relate to and I can't say I have a favorite because it would be too hard to choose from the lot, but there is one specific one that has gotten me through "difficult" days...."I Am Not Stressed". There are parts in this one poem I can relate to and others I couldn't imagine dealing with, so when I read it, it gives me hope and faith to keep on keeping on. Chris is definitely a passionate writer and you can feel the warmth in each pen stroke. This book of poetry is filled with love, faith and pain all wrapped in one... providing you with a honest view of this author's humility and appreciation for life. You won't be sorry you purchased it!!! ~ A Poetical Haven ~ 

Chris’ Culmination is an awesome book of poetry. Relatable and thought provoking, the pieces in this book make you stop, take a breath, and look inward. Would you be able to overcome the biggest challenge that Chris faced? Would you be as passionate about life if Chris’ struggles were yours? This book is full of inspirational poetry which makes it a great read and a great discussion piece for a book club. I’m hoping that this is not the culmination of Chris’ work because I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.  ~ Niecy Brown ~
