CHRISTOPHER FRANCIS Born in Brisbane, Australia, Christopher was accepted at age 19 into Sheridan College's Animation program before earning a degree in Sociology from McMaster University. He then enjoyed a two-year adventure overseas working with children, before completing his Bachelor of Education degree at York University. He is now teaching junior and intermediate level students in Burlington, Ontario. Through Christopher’s experience working with children, he found writing and illustrating to be one of his passions. Currently working on a middle-grade series, he recently completed the first four books called the “Plight of Timpleville”. He has also created ten other children’s picture books, YA books, and middle-grade stories. Christopher has also illustrated children’s novels for independent authors.
