Novelist Chris Formant is a student of history, a former top executive of a multibillion-dollar global business, and active early-stage technology investor and CEO. Formant is an unlikely author of historical fiction, but the heroic story of Maryland’s Forgotten 400 drove him to assemble an expert team to help him conduct painstaking research and then write his highly anticipated second novel, Saving Washington: The Forgotten Story of the Maryland 400 and The Battle of Brooklyn. Saving Washington has already been optioned by one of HBO’s top producers.

His debut tome, Bright Midnight, received lavish praise and has been dubbed the “Da Vinci Code for Rock and Roll Fans.” In the work, Formant creates a unique mystery in which he reimagines the deaths of rock icons as murders. Chris splits his time between Baltimore, MD and Sedona, AZ.
