Christopher Richardson is a passionate writer and a passionate teacher. Christopher Richardson had been working on his debut novel, Voyage of the Moon Child – first book in the Empire of the Waves series – for ten years when it was published by Penguin Australia in July 2015. It is an epic and action-packed maritime fantasy adventure.
He wrote a large part of the story while house-sitting in Tuscany, and finished it while undertaking his PhD on North Korean children's culture. His research has been featured in newspapers, magazines, and broadcast radio around the world.
Christopher has been excited about storytelling and writing since he was a young boy, once winning a regional creative writing competition where the prize included meeting Diana Kidd.
