Turning Purple, Chris’ début, was inspired by his late mother-in-law, Linda Turney. Linda passed away after a short, painful battle with pancreatic cancer. Chris has partnered with the National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation to help bring much needed attention to this terrible disease. All proceeds from the 1st 5,000 copies of Turning Purple will go directly to the NPCF’s financial assistance program.
Chris has worked in the professional sports industry for 21 years. Teams he’s held executive positions for include the Miami Dolphins, Cleveland Browns, New York Yankees, Florida Panthers and presently, Orlando City Soccer Club. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Florida State University.
Chris, his wife Britta and son Lucas, reside in Windermere, FL.
