Australian author Christopher J. Holcroft has written three books for teens and Young Adults to encourage them to read and enjoy the outdoors - Only The Brave Dare, Canyon and A Rite of Passage. He also written two books on near death experiences called Finding Thomas and One Last Concert, to assist readers to learn about what happens after we die.

Background Information

I served more than 35 years in Scouting as a Venturer Leader (youth aged 14-18) and noticed they lacked good adventure books about the sorts of activities they loved.

My adventure books form a trilogy of adventure around an unlikely youth called Scott Morrow who becomes the hero the nation needs and wants when fate steps in. Finally, when the chips are down in his last adventure, Scott makes a stance and chooses the hero he wants to be.

My fourth book is a stand alone on the fight a teenager has to save his father and his boss after a Police Commisisoner turns rogue and sets out to have them murdered. This action thriller was written as a way of explaining near death experiences and what happens when we die.

I have a background as a newspaper Journalist and also a Public Affairs Officer who has worked for all three tiers of the Australian Government. Also, I have served in the Rural Fire Service, the State Emergency Services and am still serving in the Army Reserve.

My background brings a rich tapestry of experience to my writing and therefore makes Scott Morrow the believable youth who could live next door to you. Also, the scenes I paint and the various themes I construct are based on real areas and current events within Australia.

Birth Place
Cooma, NSW,  Australia

I have been awarded the Reserve Forces Decoration for services to Australia's Reserve Army; the Australian Active Service Medal for my deployments to East Timor with the United Nations Transitional Authority east Timor (UNTAET) and the Iraq campaign medal. In Scouting I hold the Silver Wattle Award for services to youth.

Additional Information

My five books are Only The Brave Dare, CANYON, A Rite Of Passage, Finding Thomas and One Last Concert.
