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
