Extended Profile
Christopher P. Obert is a freelance writer from Amesbury, Massachusetts. He had worked in High Tech for over 20 years but because of massive cuts in the Massachusetts technology field he was “down sized.” During those years he had worked for Lucent Technologies (formerly Western Electric and AT&T) and Nucletronix Inc.

Since 2002 has devoted his time to his writing. He is a member of The Poetry Society of New Hampshire and The Greater Haverhill Poets. His poetry has appeared in Space and Time, The Silent Journey, Voices of Haverhill and The Poet’s Touchstone. He has written two poetry books: Reflections and The Visual Side. Chris also co-wrote, compiled and edited a family history book called Thanks for the Memories – the Serra Family Tree and Stories. He co-wrote a guidebook with his wife Nancy titled The Next Harvest… Vineyards & Wineries of New England. He has also written articles for Numismatic News, a magazine devoted to coin collecting.

In 2005 Chris created Pear Tree Publishing, an imprint of Obert Publishing, to assist authors and groups to self-publish their work. Chris aids authors and groups with the skills needed to turn their manuscript into a fine, high quality book. Pear Tree Publishing also provides marketing support, by way of its webpage, catalog, networking and public functions.

Chris edited and published the Greater Haverhill Poets’ book Pen and Brush and Expressions From His Heart for Pasquale A. Emiro. Pear Tree Publishing also published the poetry book Moments Falling Open for the Write Group. He also published the spiritualism book My Walk with Mary, In the Footsteps of Bernadette for Mary Marshall and the Maine history books, Bound for Munsungun and Bound for Munsungun – Family Heirloom Edition by Jack Ahern. Another book that Chris published is King of the Forest by Lucinda Marcoux.
