Christopher Schule is what you would call a serial hobbyist. He enjoys the actual excitement and steep learning curve a new hobby brings more than the hobby itself. Some of his “hobbies” have included: kayak building, boating, running, cello playing, instrument building, guitar playing, woodworking, beer brewing, kickboxing, boxing, writing, engine rebuilding, house building, electronics, 3D graphic design, cooking, building airplanes in bottles, flying, piano playing, magic, and many others. Some of those hobbies last a very short time (cooking was about 2 months). Fortunately some became long term, flying and writing were two of those. After the birth of his first son, he quickly realized he need a cheap hobby… so flying was out and writing was something he always wanted to try. His co-author was in the same boat and they quickly started writing “Lost HOPE” together.
