Event Overview: The NSW Premier's Reading Challenge, Dymocks Children's Charities Authors Online series proudly presents Christopher Richardson.
In addition to writing for young people, Christopher describes himself as inhabiting "a mysterious world, where children's culture and international politics colide".
Christopher's debut novel, 'Empire of the Waves' is described as an "action-packed and engaging fantasy series".
He recently completed his PhD, which looked at the children's culture of North Korea, and has published and taught extensively.
Christopher will engage with students about writing for young people and making fantasy 'real'. Students will have the opportunity to ask Christopher questions about his writing, travels, teaching and research.
