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 childhood stories featured either one or both of these things.

More recently, I’ve written a bunch of books for the best-selling Zac Power series, as well as my own six-book YA series, The Phoenix Files.

I've also co-written The Gateway, an eight-book series for primary school kids about a hotel for aliens, alongside Rowan McAuley and David Harding. 

I live in Sydney, where I split my time between writing, Christian Studies teaching, and running kids' stuff at 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,
