Dr. Christopher Frey is an artist who reads all things, writes and illustrates children's stories, and specializes in what he calls, "critical Creative research and writing," and usually presented in its acronymic form, "[cCrw]," to be pronounced, "crow," as in the big black bird that eats carrion. Dr. Frey enjoys talking about things with students and sharing with them the joy of making essays.
