Christopher J. Holcroft has written for both Teens and Young Adults and Adult audiences alike.

He spent more than 40 years leading Venturer Scouts (boys and girls aged 14-18). His experience in the outdoors in the Australian wilds is reflected in the Scott Morrow adventure trilogy of which A Rite Of Passage is the third book in the series. The other two books are Only The Brave Dare and CANYON.

He was in the Australian Army Reserve for more than 43 years and served internationally on deployments including a stint with the United Nations. Christopher brings his rich tapestry of experience to life in his adventure books aimed specifically at boys aged 11-18 in an effort to get them the read more and also enjoy the great outdoors.

Christopher turned his attention to Adults and has written three books in his Afterlife series for them. His fourth book, Finding Thomas, is about a near-death experience with a political twist that could bring a Government to its knees. The second book, One Last Concert, is about moving on the spirits of people trapped on Earth after sudden deaths. Christopher's latest book, Time Voyager, sees a young man conflicted in the present day about being aboard a Navy destroyer that was cut in two by an aircraft carrier two decades ago. He uses past life regression to help him return to the disaster and so help three families in the present come together.

Soon to be published will be Christopher's first non-fiction book detailing the last man to die in a New South Wales Corrective Services prison van. The man, Christopher's brother Mark, died of a heart attack twixt two correctional facilities. The book will detail the fight by Mark's surviving siblings to change the course of Government and so introduce basic human rights to prisoners on a broad scale.

Christopher is married to wife Yvonne who has also been in the Girl Guide movement for around the same time.
