Christopher is currently housed at FCI-Petersburg, where he is a passionate advocate of education within prisons for prisoners. He has been aggressively pursuing an advanced education from Ohio University, maintaining a 4.0 GPA. Not only is Christopher a student, he is a highly regarded author and educator, teaching a writing and publishing ACE class to fellow-prisoners in the prison's Education Department. As an author, his present literary project is a comprehensive prison education reference book, EDUCATION BEHIND BARS, for which he is currently negotiating a publishing contract.
Mr. Zoukis is a staff writer for 3 publications: the STATE AND FEDERAL CRIMINAL LAW REVIEW, the TEXAS CRIMINAL LAW REVIEW, and THE UPDATE: FEDERAL CRIMINAL AND IMMIGRATION LAW. He is the winner of two 2011 Pen American Center Prison Writing Awards (one in drama and the other for fiction) and is an approved reviewer for the New York Journal of Books and for BlogCritics.com. His work has appeared in such publications as the Kansas City Star, the Sacramento Bee, the Seattle-Post Intelligencer, the Midwest Book Review, Rain Taxi, Radiant Attack, Innocence Denied, and others, much of which was syndicated by the Associated Press, Google news, and Yahoo News.
Determined not to allow the fact that he is in prison to halt the progress of his life, MR. Zoukis refuses to squander time. His focus is two-pronged: academic achievement and his literary endeavors. He may have begun his term of incarceration as a "confused kid" who made poor decisions, but what emerged was a man resolved to create a better life. "We can't let the past define us," he says. "Do something today to make tomorrow what you want it to be."
