About Christopher Slatter

I have been a professional writer since I was 17 years old.

I have been an advertising copywriter, film director, teacher of screenwriting and a television producer. I have worked for some of the world's largest advertising agencies in Australia and the UK before attending the London Film School for two years.

A career as a director of television commercials and short films followed before returning to Australia to take up the post of creative director of a small agency in Melbourne. Following an invitation to direct a series for Australian television, I returned to the screen.

Then in 1990 I went back to university, studying geology, horticulture, environmental science and plant genetics. I am also a writer of science fiction with several published stories. I hold dual British and Australian citizenship. I have two (very large) children which are the joy of my life

Review by: Brittani Cagley on March 22, 2013 :
Wow, that was fun, just finished and thought I’d review whilst still fresh. First of all, this is a story built on a scientific theory that really is believable. Not sure if the author has a time machine as the future he describes seems a very real possibility! He certainly knows his stuff both in terms of the science that sits behind this too. Great read, very highly recommended!

I am a big fan of SciFi, loved the clear plot of Darwin's Blueprint. The story flowed very nicely, characters were strong. Knowledge base within story was awesome, didn't slow the story down it had a nice flow I strongly recommend this book, you won't be disappointed.

OK, so here’s the deal, I like hard sci-fi. I like reading something and learning something at the same time. The down side to this is that often story takes a back seat to fact and figure. This book doesn’t fall into this trap. This story was fun, which is odd for hard sci-fi. It had a great flow and surprisingly human main characters. It also had a clear tone that wasn’t heavy handed and an interesting plot. If you don’t like sci-fi, this one probably won’t change your mind, I can say that for any fan of the genre, you will have a good time with this one.
