Christopher Locke

Christopher Locke worked in the television industry for over a decade before pursuing his passion project, “Persimmon Takes On Humanity,” which is the thrilling first book of the young adult series, “The Enlightenment Adventures.”

The story follows Persimmon, a compassionate raccoon, who teams up with a group of courageous critters who risk their own lives to rescue any creature they see suffering at the hands of humans. As the epic tale entertains readers, it challenges them to question what being humane really means. Since the novel’s debut in March 2015, it has received rave reviews and been featured on multiple animal-friendly media outlets. Christopher has also spent the last year embarking on a book tour at renowned events around the country, and is currently having a blast writing Book Two of the series. Learn more at
