About CP Wren
CP Wren pursued story through film studies at USC in the late 70's which evolved into a lifelong love affair with animation. A few snippets are viewable here. Wren founded a multi-media startup for games development in the late 80's. But production life came to an abrupt end in '95 at the bottom of a mountain ravine. Climbing out of that ravine took a number of years. Through it all, Wren held onto the love for story and had the good luck of receiving tutelage in writing with author Tom Spanbauer. His society of Dangerous Writers in Portland, OR ignited an indelible passion for writing. For Wren, that experience revealed the pathway to writing from 'on the body' to 'under the skin'a path from which there's no turning away.
Wren currently writes and designs a w.i.p. graphical story, the 7-title series, Utopia's Shadowa future parallel universe and a tale of love and renewal. The world is in a post-cataclysmic state due to great climactic upheavalnot a dystopia, but an adventure and an escape from the strictures of an overly prescribed utopian society. Wren's delivery of story is also spoken through the practice of Evolutionary Astrologywith a psychic twistdoing readings and mentoring astrological storytellers. Wren's storying also extends into holistic health through acupressure for humans, dogs and cats. Wren's cat, Jane, takes very seriously the job of announcing time for daily editing breaks in the garden.
