Former journalist. Full-time outlaw. Sometimes they're the same thing. I write fiction, poetry and plays. Hemingway and Isabel Allende, Steinbeck and Sam Shepard, James M. Cain and Lillian Hellman, Octavio Paz and Dylan Thomas... the list of great writers who have had an influence is as long and varied as my life. That's a long list.

Background Information

I write because otherwise I'd be in jail. Or dead. Or in Mexico. I'd rather be in Mexico. Writing.


Birth Place
Huntington, WV USA

Numerous journalism awards - they probably should all have been for fiction.

I Only Wanna Be With You - my novel
Writer Rick Boston finds himself embroiled in a Hollywood round-robin of sex, booze and mysterious beauties in the noir novel from critically-acclaimed author Chris Dickerson.

Crossing The Frontier - Poetry & Prose
"CROSSING THE FRONTIER" is a brilliant collection of short prose and poetry from acclaimed novelist, playwright and award-winning journalist Chris Dickerson. From the nightmare that was 9/11 to the war in Iraq, through victims of Katrina and the sweeping effects of new immigration laws, Dickerson moves backward and forward in time to look at where America and Americans are at the dawn of the 21st Century. From New York to Los Angeles and stops in between, he takes on first-hand all the issues: homelessness, war, love and relationships, natural disaster, global warming, the media, social unrest, while also pausing to examine the heart and soul of those seeking to redefine their place in contemporary America – not least, the author himself. Terse, poignant, tough-minded, witty and irreverent, “Crossing The Frontier” breaks new ground in the art of poetry and short stories.

Original Works Publishing
Publisher of two of my plays, "Deadline" and "To Bury Caesar." They're under "Full Length Plays" alpha by title or author.
