Christopher Morgan has been a singer in a French restaurant, an artificial tree builder, a kitchen hand, a fire brigade roster clerk and a printing factory storeroom worker. In 1996 Christopher was diagnosed with a brain tumour and found that the only thing that was improved by the tumour was his imagination and decided to put it to good use. His first novel for adults, The Island of Four Rivers, was published in 2006 after which Christopher wrote two children's stories, Pirates Eat Porridge (2006) and Pirates Drive Buses (2007). Currawalli Street is his second novel for adults.
