About

I am currently working on a historical book that I wrote about the Milwaukee Brewers. This book covers the backstory of events that led to the Braves moving to Atlanta, and Bud Selig’s fight to bring baseball back to Milwaukee through numerous setbacks and disappointments. Readers will follow a chronological story from the early years of Brewers baseball through triumph, tragedy, and rebirth in a new ballpark.  McFarland & Company will be publishing the book in 2018/19 – just in time for the 50th anniversary of the Brewers franchise!

I also have other works that I will pursue publishing besides the current work-in-progress.  I will share excerpts and the writing/research process here with blog posts and on the Books page as well.

Please stick around – I like to say there’s something for everyone!

Alright, now let’s do the “official” third person bio and get that out of the way.  Afterward, if you’re awake, join me on the other side for personal information.

Chris Zantow is a longtime corporate writer of training materials and resources for adults. Initially a writer for such publications as the Verona Press, he later received a radio/television degree from the Trans America School of Broadcasting.   Christopher followed this with a career as a radio announcer before returning to writing full time.

Chris is a member of the Wisconsin Writers Association.

He lives in Madison, Wisconsin, with his wife and rabbit Emma.

Still here?  If so, here’s that other “stuff” I promised…

I enjoy in no particular order:  Spending time with my wife – we love movies of nearly all genres, reading – especially biographies and historical books, travel, Doctor Who, baseball, parks and waterside scenery, special times with friends and family, and bonding with our bunny.  I had a lot of other interests when I was young, but times I’m told, do change.  So that’s me as of July, 2015, when this blog was launched.
