Schmitz's fiction stories are somewhere on the spectrum between Steven King and Stephen Lawhead. They often veer into the spectacular and imaginative and fall into the darker side of tropes before finding that thread of hope and light.
He hangs out a lot at comicons and meets many interesting folks who are right at home with his themes. He is a writer of faith but not all of his stories are overtly religious and usually strives to communicate with symbolic themes and narrative instead of direct preaching.
If you enjoy the authors Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker (speculative fiction writers) you will feel right at home with Schmitz's writing. He keeps a blog where he provides writing advice to Indie authors and does regular book reviews; he also speaks on this topic and more at libraries, comicons, schools, and more.

When I began Wolf of the Tesseract, it was apparent that Christopher D. Schmitz meant to make an everlasting impression on me, the reader. This science fiction story literally had an explosive start and the action continued on until the final chapter.
Kam's World Reviews
Christopher’s imagination seemed limitless, his plot flawless, and the ending left it wide open for a highly-charged sequel.This book shines best when it comes to action... It's everywhere, its intense and its glorious
