Christopher Crosby Morris (born 1946) is an American author, singer-songwriter and composer, married to author Janet Morris. He is a defense policy and strategy analyst and a principal in M2 Technologies, Inc. He writes as Chris Morris, a shortened form of his name.

Chris Morris began writing music in 1966, fiction in 1984, and non-fiction in 1989. Much of his fiction and nonfiction literary work, including all of his book-length science fiction and fantasy, has been written in collaboration with his wife Janet Morris, with whom he has also written two novels under the joint pseudonym of Daniel Stryker and one novel under the pseudonym Casey Prescott. He has contributed short fiction to the shared universe series Thieves World, Heroes in Hell, and Merovingen Nights. He has written nonfiction on military and defense matters in collaboration with Janet Morris, including the book, The American Warrior, Longmeadow Press, (1992). Morris is leader of the Christopher Morris Band, whose album of the same name (MCA 2282), was released by MCA records in 1977. Morris served as Research Director and Senior Fellow at the United States Global Strategy Council in 1985-1995, and adjunct fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in 1992-94. At USGSC, Morris co-authored the nonlethal weapons concept and the seminal paper, Non-lethality: A Global Strategy, (US Global Strategy Council, 1989) and co-led the Council's Non-lethality Policy Working Group. Events surrounding Morris's work in the nonlethal weapons area are chronicled in Chapter 15 of War and Anti-War, by Alvin and Heidi Toffler, (Little, Brown, 1993).
