Apex Legends owner and author / illustrator of Josef, The Indy Car Driver Chris Workman is a father of three and life-long fan of all forms of racing. Workman is a seasoned motorsports marketing & advertising professional who became inspired to create a series of children’s picture books about racecars, drivers, team & tracks when he yearned for similar content to read to his kids, and realized very few authentic options existed. So, he decided to create them himself!
In addition to covering all aspects of car racing in an educational and entertaining manner for kids, Workman is focused on weaving in the true magic of motorsports – family bonding & shared passions – into his books. To that point, Josef, The Indy Car Driver is set at Road America, the first racetrack Workman ever visited in his native Wisconsin with his father and brother, and the hallowed ground that sparked his intense love of racing. Workman’s first book, The Longest Day – A Childhood Race Adventure chronicles the adventures of a father and son bonding together at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Workman currently resides in Huntersville, North Carolina with his wife, Rachel, and three kids.
