Novelist Chris Formant is a student of history. He’s a former top executive of a multi-billion-dollar global business and current technology company 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 book, SAVING WASHINGTON. Chris divides his time between Baltimore, Maryland and Sedona, Arizona.
