About Me

Hey Internet!

I’m Chris Morphew. Sometime I write books.

As a kid, I was obsessed with dinosaurs and spaceships, so most of my stories featured either one or both of these things. More recently, I’ve written twelve books for the best-selling Zac Power series and my own six-book YA series, The Phoenix Files.

Currently, I’m working on two new projects: a stand-alone YA alien invasion novel, and a new sci-fi/adventure series for primary school kids that I’m co-writing with Rowan McAuley and David Harding.

I live in Sydney, where I split my time between writing, teaching, and involvement with my local church. I also enjoy coffee, Mario Kart, young adult fiction, and heavily-serialised TV shows about mysterious islands.

I have a sporadically-updated YouTube channel and some less-sporadically-updated Facebook and Twitter and Instagram accounts, because apparently author websites are old news and social media is the way of the future.

Anyway, welcome to my website! Please enjoy this thank you gift.

Grace and peace,

Chris

      Hey Chris,
      First of all, I LOVE Phoenix files, and I am just about to start reading doomsday (I finished Fallout 10 minutes ago)
      Secondly, YOU’VE READ ALL THE BOOKS I’VE READ!!! I have also read Narnia, Harry Potter and the Animorphs series. Do you REALLY own all 54 Animorphs books? I own 7 (including ones on my kindle).
      And finally, I want to be an authur but I’m having trouble coming up with an idea that I don’t think is stupid
      Anyway, your and awesome writer, so keep writing books like the Phoenix files,
      Bye
      P.S. I knew Jordan reminded me of someone else I had read about (Rachel from Animorphs)
      P.P.S seriously? Tobias?

      • Chris Morphew

        Thanks Elaine!

        Huh, that’s interesting – neither Rachel nor Tobias were conscious inspirations for The Phoenix FIles, although the Animorphs series as a whole was definitely a big influence!

      Are you making a movie of the Phoenix files.

      Are you making another Phoenix files book after doomsday . And if you are what is it called.

        Not sure about a movie. No plans yet, but I’ll let you all know if I hear anything!

        No plans for a 7th Phoenix Files book either – working on a couple of other projects, though!

      Hey Chris, will you ever wright a series on the different ways shakleton would have wiped out the human race? Because calvin said there were more ways that he would have destroyed the human race!
      if you do could you do it with different characters?

      Reply
      • Chris Morphew

        Hmm… That’s an interesting idea, but I don’t think I’ll ever write anything like that – of all the plans Shackleton could have made, I think the Phoenix one was probably the most interesting to read about!

    Hello! The main reason I am here is to say thank you writing these books and inspiring me to start writing myself! Along with Joanne Rowling and Suzanne Collins, you have really brought light into my life even when times are most dark. And you’re australian! So am I! So you’re awesome. I’ve already written to Lionsgate Films, Paramount Pictures and Warner Brothers, asking them desperately to create a movie out of your amazing series. I waited for about one year for Fallout to be released, and I can’t even tell you how excited I am for the final chapter in the series, doomsday! It will be here so soon! I’m so happy! Anyway, I gotta sum it up here, but I just thought it would be cool to tell you how awesome your writing skills are!

    Hi Chris,
    I am a Year 6 teacher in Melbourne. I came across your series by default, in an attempt to connect with a ‘distant’ student. Worked a charm, I initially began reading for her, but very quickly became absorbed in your fantastic series myself. I have had Doomsday on pre order, and now my student emailed me to say she has the book already! So much for organisation. I guess I will have to beg, borrow or steal it from her.
    Thank you for inspiring young readers,

        Why do you think Jordan? Just wondering

        Jordan’s brave, fiercely protective of her family, and has a strong desire to think deeply and discover the truth about things. I think she’d be a pretty terrifying friend to have in real life, but there’s a lot to admire about her!

    Hi Chris~
    I just finished reading Doomsday, and wow. What an ending XD I won’t say any spoilers, but it was really surprising. I really enjoyed the whole series and I can’t wait to see more of your stuff in the future! <3

      The Phoenix Files are the only books I’ve written under my own name, but I also used to write books for the Zac Power series under the name “H.I. Larry” – my favourite ones of those are probably the Mega Missions.

    Hey! I’m not sure if you remember me (I doubt that you do, seeing as you have so many fans, haha) but I’ve commented on a few of your posts before, and my friend Aleisha got you to write me a not for my birthday. Anyway, I just finished reading Doomsday (literally about 2 minutes ago) and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!! I can’t wait until the next book that your planning to write! Are you planning to make it a sci-fi-ish book like the Phoenix Files? If so, could you maybe name a character after me? I’m a really really REALLY big fan of your books, and so are my friends. You, along with Veronica Roth, Joanne Rowling and Rick Riordan, have inspired me to become an author. Your writing is so detailed (unlike mine) and complicated (in a good way, also unlike mine) I’m working on these things, but when I’m reading I can’t help but marvel at your great way of writing. Wow, this is longer than I planned. Please answer everything I wrote! (Even if its no to me being a character haha) Thanks! From Karina

    Chris,
    you are one of my favourite authors and I would just like to say thanks for writing such an awesome book series, The Phoenix Files. Each book ended in an awesome cliff-hanger, making me crave for more and more. I was so thrilled to start reading the last book, Doomsday, but also disappointed since it was the last one. I hope you start writing another series similar to The Phoenix Files. I hope to start reading Zac Power soon. :D

    Also, I seriously hope the Phoenix Files becomes a movie, that would just be amazing, and to also be shot in Australia~

    Chris, you’ve out-done yourself, seriously.

    What started as what looked like avsoppy love story suggested by a friend, turned out to be the best series of books ive ever read, and I mean that, ive given these books to all my friends, and we frieked out when Doomday came out.

    I have to say this however, page 392, near the bottom, it says widow instead of window, just so you know.

    I just FINALLY finished Doomsday after rereading the series again before reading it so I was up with the plot. IT IS THE BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER AND WILL EVER READ!!!

    Just wondering, did you ever do a map of Phoenix, because in my stories I have done lots of stuff like that but if I ever became a proper author I doubt I’d publish them.

    Anyway, thank you for being such an inspiring author.

    So far I’m nearly up to reading the third series of the Phoenix Files and so far am really enjoying it. Also for one of my high school assignments, we had to research about the author of the book that you were reading. So that is why I chose YOU for the assignment as you’re a really good author and also an interesting person. I have to answers questions like…

    Before you read these, you do not have to answer these if you don’t want too.

    *What is your FULL name?

    *When was the author’s FULL date of birth and where?

    *What are the names of author’s spouse, children, and/or pets?

    *What are the author’s parents’ names?

    *What are the author’s favorite books/authors?

    *What are the author’s hobbies and talents?

    *What is this author’s favorite subject in school?

    *What made this author unique as a child?

    *Where did this author grow up?

    *Where did this author attend college?

    *What other professions has this author worked in?

    *Where does the author live now?

    *What else has this author written?

    I do not know if I have sent this email properly but hopefully you might able to respond. I really look up to you as an author and a nice person. Keep writing awesome books!

    I finished the Phoenix Files yesterday and I would just like to say…
    I endeavor to write a book that makes people feel the way I did after I read yours! You capture the integrity of each character and weave everything together so brilliantly! I’ve always wanted to be an author but I’m not sure if I could do what you can. And I have a few questions…
    Did you do a degree or a course on creative writing? If so where?
    And what subject do you teach?
    Well thanks for listening,
    From Shay!
    P.s. you are handsdown my favourite author

    Hi!
    At the moment i’m reading The Phoenix Files and I CAN’T PUT THEM DOWN! They are SO amazing! My old favorite series was Percy Jackson, and I thought that they would be hard to beat. But, you certainty have beaten them! I absolutely LOVE The Phoenix Files and they are now by far my favorite series.

    I just finished the 4th book today, and I started it yesterday. I began reading the series last Sunday! Now I’m really bored because I don’t have any Phoenix Files books to read! At school, I’m in a writers club, which I really enjoy. When I grow up, I really want to be an author and school teacher, just like you!

    Thank you for providing me with such enjoyment over the school holidays.

    From,
    Josie :)

    At the end of Underground, Kara and Soren show Jordan and Luke the video of Peter stabbing Luke, like, from 20 years ago. i’m just really confused how he’s still alive, and stuff.
    Thank you SO much!

    Hi Chris,
    I have started reading the Phoenix Files, and I am completely HOOKED. I’ve nearly finished ‘Contact’ and am enjoying it IMMENSELY ( or however you spell it ). I used to read Zac Power when I was in year 3/4 and now that I realise you wrote some of them, I am even more of a fan. I love to read. I read all sorts of things, from Skulduggery Pleasant to Harry Potter and The Phoenix Files is the best so far. There’s one thing I would like to ask. Of all things, why did they name the virus, plague or whatever, Tabitha? Anyway, nice seeing your blog. Bye now,

    • Chris Morphew

      Haha the honest answer about Tabitha: I work at a girls’ school and wanted to make sure I picked a name that no one in the whole school had!

    Hi Chris :) (Sorry if this message is long- I just love to write, and I love your books so much)

    So, I’m half fangirling about your books right now :P They first came to my school at our book fair last year and I read the back. I put the book down cause I didn’t want to waste my money (no offense, just what I thought at first). Then, my friend, who is totally obsessed with the Hunger Games, started reading the books and said that they were so much better than THG :) So I decided to check them out.
    I read Arrival the first night I checked out the book– I’ve only read till five in the morning before, and that was for the Hunger Games. After I finished the book at 5 AM the next day, I almost died from suspense, and checked out Contact. (Which is my favorite book of the series and left me breathless after Reeve’s supposed murder).
    Anyway, I read the other books until I finished Fallout, leaving me to wait a WHOLE THREE MONTHS for Doomsday to come out (I know it’s not that long, but since I live in the U.S., I didn’t know when it being published, since you said in your videos that you didn’t know when it was coming out here.) And then my friend gave it to me and I almost cried (that’s how “fangirls” react :P.) After I finished Doomsday, I shut the book and sat in my room for three hours, not knowing what to do.
    I’ve started writing a story/book, that I actually continued [all my other ideas have ended at the third or fourth chapter]), thanks to you, my favorite author.
    So, that’s how your books have impacted my life. Speaking of life, I think I already told you my life story, so I’ll TRY stop here. :)
    P.S. I’d give anything to meet you and for you to respond, and anything for movies to be made based on your books. Let’s hope they don’t screw them up like they did for the Percy Jackson series (which I’ve been meaning to read :) )
    P.P.S. Sorry for writing a whole novel in this message– I’m just so excited to find this blog thingamajig =)

    Hi, you came and talked to my school (Hewitt trussville) and I have a question. I write a lot and have wrote one book and published through an online self publishing thingy. How do you come up with ideas for your books and where do you write them down?

    Reply
    • Chris Morphew

      I usually write my ideas down in either a notebook or the notes app on my phone. For me, the best way to start generating ideas is to just pay attention to the world around you and see what weird/interesting/funny/unusual things you notice – you never know what might spark an idea. From there, I just ask myself lots of “What if…?” and “Why…?” type questions, and that usually helps get my from initial ideas to something I can make a story out of.

      The Sky So Heavy by Claire Zorn is a great book by an Australian author. I also really like the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness and The Tomorrow Code by Brian Falkner. And I definitely recommend Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia if you haven’t tried them already!

    Hey Chris, I’ve written here a few times and you’ve responded, which I still to this day think is AMAZING. I’d just like to know, do you know George R.R Martin? Have you read any of his books, such as “A Song Of Ice And Fire”. They’re amazing. Have you seen the “Game of Thrones” TV show?

    Sorry for the irrelevance of these questions, I am just curious. Your work as authors, you and George, are completely different of course but I love them both. I just wanted to know if you liked/disliked these at all.

    By the way, I still haven’t gotten the very last book of yours and its killing me! I completely got out of the loop with everything and I seen all my old books as I was cleaning my room and I reread the last book (not the entire thing as I was suppose to be cleaning) and it all came back to me and now I MUST READ THE LAST BOOK!

    Getting it for my birthday, which is the 15th. Anyway, I hate to drag this on, thanks in advance for your time Chris:) You seem like a great guy. Also, if you are familiar with George’s work with the song of ice and fire books or the TV show based on them, game of thrones, could you list reasons why you do or don’t like them?

    That’s if you’re familiar with them though. This all just out of curiosity, I’m not going to counter you if you say you don’t like them. I’d just like to know your opinions on these if you have any. You’re both great authors. Anyway, before I rant again, cya!

    • Chris Morphew

      Hey Michael,

      I’ve got mixed feelings about Game of Thrones. There’s a lot to love: expansive fantasy world, sprawling cast of interesting characters, great dialogue, interesting storytelling…

      BUT there’s a lot about GoT that I find really frustrating too.

      I realise that the extremely graphic nature of the show is a big part of the appeal for a lot of people – but for me, it so often feels gratuitous. There’s a big difference between “shocking” and “clever” and I think GoT too often settles for the former… which is a shame, because they’ve proven themselves more than capable of being clever too, when they want to be.

      I also don’t get the sense that the story is going anywhere. Increasingly, it just feels like a soap opera rather than an epic.

      But in the end, probably my biggest complaint is that the show really doesn’t seem to have all that much to say. I mean, yeah, it does a great job of illustrating the darkness and twistedness and brokenness of people – but in the end, that’s not exactly an insightful observation. And if all the show is trying to say is, “The world is dark and people are horrible,” then for me, that’s kind of a letdown…

      For me, the greatest stories are the ones that do take a good, long, unflinching look at the brokenness of the world, but that then go on to speak into that darkness and grapple with the questions of how we’re supposed to deal with that. And if the best answer GoT has to offer is, “Just suck it up, because everything is horrible all the way down,” then I can’t help feeling a little bit underwhelmed…

        Hey Chris :)

        Thank you for your long answer and honest opinion, I really appreciate it. It’s exactly what I asked for yet more than I expected.

        I see a little bit more to it than that but I defiantly agree with you on some of those points. I see the story going somewhere for the Westeros story line with all those characters, but not with Daenerys and her story. Daenerys is a great character but her story feels like it is dragging out far too much. But I don’t know how much of the show you have seen/ when you last watched it and if you know what I’m talking about or not so I will leave it at that.

        I’d recommend you the books if you haven’t read them, at least the first one, if you get free time and want to read more fantasy. You obviously know it’s a bit more mature than LOTR. By this I mean the content being of a higher rating, I’m not talking down on Tolkein. Just clarification XD

        Thanks again for your detailed and honest answer, it means a lot. Also, I lent the first Phoenix Files book to one of my friends and she wasn’t extremely hooked at the start but kept reading because of her curiosity on what was going on in the story, now she loves it. Thank you for giving us another thing to talk about PLUS that’s easy Christmas presents I can give now.

        Thank you for your time.

The thing with Luke and Peter going into the past etc. was AMAZING. My friend was up to maybe fallout when I started reading and it was so awesome that I finished it before her. I didn’t really like the hunger games THAT much, but doomsday was every bit as exciting as Mockingjay. I LOVE Georgia and I even named a character after her. I was going to name her “Jordan” But it really doesn’t suit pale skin and jet black hair if you know what I mean. Also you have some really funny jokes (“We had an action-packed half hour of house watching. Highlights included a bike going past and Ketterley’s neighbour taking his rubbish out” not exactly word for word, but I hope you know what I mean) that are as funny as the ones in Artemis Fowl (By the way if anyone hasn’t read it, you REALLY should. It was my favourite series before I heard of P. F.)

    This is Eve again, I wonder how many people have asked for a movie? 1000000000? and you’ve replied to every one! I grew up on Narnia, I’m 12 now and my 5-year-old sister listens to Narnia audiobooks at night. I’m not allowed to read Harry Potter. Have you watched L.o.t.R? If so, what was your favourite movie? Mine was return of the king. (Sorry, this is EXTREMELY irrelevant) And do you like listening to music? What are your favourite bands? Mine are Skillet and Relient K.
    Sorry to bother you, Eve

      Yeah, I’ve seen Lord of the Rings – but too long ago to remember which one was my favourite! I’m actually reading the books at the moment, so I’m sure I’ll go back and watch the movies again once I’ve finished that!

      As for music, I like Relient K quite a bit, but I thought their latest album was a bit disappointing. Favourite bands are Switchfoot, Five Iron Frenzy… also really liking Andy Mineo’s new EP at the moment. And the second Mumford and Sons album… and a lot of random hip-hop.

    only heard a couple of songs from Relient K. I’ve read the hobbit thrice, return of the king, but I couldn’t be bothered to read return of the king, and just watched the movie

      Hey Milo,

      Awesome! The Phoenix High emblem is a red Phoenix with its wings curved up into a circle.

    Hi
    I luv ur books. They’re the best books in the world. My fav series in the world is The Phoenix Files and I LOVE reading so that’s saying something. Ask anyone in my class who I am and they’ll say”she’s the one who’s reading during recess, lunch, and every lesson in our home group. She’s the book fan”. I can’t include the class and school for privacy reasons but yeah. I love books. Can you please make a movie?and write more books in The Phoenix Files? Also, can you please send me photos of every character in the book and the Phoenix emblem if you have photos? I’m trying to make a trailer but I don’t have any photos and I’m thinking I might make a movie on my iPad. Like, a real movie. But I need to know how the people look. I’m not good at stuff like that. Please?thanks.

    So, I recently finished reading the Phoenix files. And I was hoping at the start that I would get the same book from a different perspective. Then we could’ve known all the characters back stories. I was ex

      Expecting all the books to based around Luke. Also. As much as I want a movie, would it not be hard to depict characters with no images or anything.
      I heard you liked mario kart… well I do too… HMAJDGGKBF we like have so much in common.
      Also, would you mind checking out my wattpad where I write books?

    Hi I have been reading the Phoenix files I am now up to the 5th one fallout. I was wondering will it ever become a movie? I love the books and I am so desperate to finish them but I also don’t want to so I am enjoy them longer. The Phoenix files series is my favourite series and books I have read so far and would like to see how they will turn out as a movie.

    Hi Chris, I live in the U.S and I just found your series the Phoenix Files, and boy is it amazing! I’m in the 8th grade and I’ve read well over 500 books, I love reading, and I have to say that this is my favorite series ever! I’m on the fourth book right now, and almost finished. Thanks and keep up the good work!
    P.S. I was kinda wondering who was who on the front covers of your books. I know which one’s Jordan but I’m confused as to who Luke and Peter are. Thanks again!

      Hi Kaden – glad to hear you’ve been enjoying the books! On the covers, Peter is the one who moves further away from the others as the series goes on.
