An acclaimed New York bestselling, award-winning author of several books, in the thriller, suspense, science fiction, mystery, horror, paranormal and supernatural genres.

His book publications typically involve the supernatural, paranormal, the occult, Science fiction, (thriller) mystery, (true crime), and horror.

As a journalist and producer, Chris Mentillo also writes professional news and media articles for several various media outlets, (television) and publications. He has also written entertainment reviews for movies and music, including songs (from his record label) for some of the best in the industry.

Mentillo has an extensive writing and editing portfolio- boasting well over a thousand articles, ranging anywhere from true crime, true fiction, unsolved mysteries, corresponding news media, the paranormal, the occult to financial, self-help, entertainment, celebrity deaths and crimes, to topics relating to business issues.

He was born in Auburn, New York, while he grew up in Skaneateles, New York. Chris Mentillo then moved to the Boston, Massachusetts New England Area, where he finished receiving his formal education at Bradford College in Massachusetts.

Chris Mentillo became a graduate of, “The Massachusetts Criminal Justice Training Council Center” in Boston, Massachusetts, Northeastern University Massachusetts program.

To date, Dr. Chris Mentillo has earned scholarships to both Drexel University and Syracuse University Whitman School of Management. He currently plans to further his education at various colleges until he can no longer attend.

Plagued with horrific nightmares during his tenure in New England, he began writing about his real-life spiritual and paranormal experiences while documenting them in his personal journal.

These documents also consisted of the author's bizarre dreams. Some of the "true occurrences" he later recorded from literature became available on his radio show broadcasts. However, for some reason, he officially only published a portion of them. This later lead to him writing aibout true-crime mixed with paranormal horror, and the supernatural for which he believes all intertwine.
