Chris Morphew

Chris Morphew was born in Sydney in 1985. He spent his childhood drawing comic books and writing stories about dinosaurs and time machines. During high school, Chris read a lot of young adult science fiction, and his collection of all 54 Animorphs books still has pride of place on his bookshelf.
After school, Chris did a short stint as a primary school teacher – definitely the second-best job in the world – and then started writing for kids and young adults. His experiences as a teacher, combined with those formative high school years, have resulted in unintentional invaluable research for his writing.
Chris still lives in Sydney and divides his time between writing and casual teaching. He remains a sci-fi junkie to this day, and believes there is no movie so great that it couldn’t be improved with the addition of a spaceship.
