Christine grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and graduated from San Francisco State University Cum Laude with a BA in English Literature. She attended the Squaw Valley Workshop and the Maui Writers Retreat where she studied under the acclaimed novelist Jane Hamilton.

Having spent considerable time in Italy, France, and England, she developed a keen interest in history, the ability of the individual to change events, and the power of belief. In her stories, she brings to life the effect of the past upon the present, the puzzle of perception, and the mystery of time.

Christine writes book reviews for Catholicfiction.net and contributes to the Christian Post at http://blogs.christianpost.com/bindings/, American Christian Fiction Writers, and LibertyIslandMag.com. She is a member of the California Writers Club and the C.S. Lewis Society.  She supports Nazareth House Apostolate, a charitable work for children in Sierra Leone, Africa, Third Box, a pregnancy consulting clinic, and Children’s Hospital in Oakland. She is Managing Editor of the American Church Union, the publishing house of the Anglican Province of Christ the King.  All of Christine’s proceeds from her novels are given to children’s charities.

Christine’s trilogy of Western Europe includes: Pilgrimage (OakTara 2007), set in Italy, a story of grief and healing; Offerings (OakTara 2009), set in France, a story of trust and faith; Inheritance (OakTara 2010), set in England, a story of life and belief. Her fourth novel, Hana-lani (OakaTara 2010), takes place in Hawaii and explores the demands of love. The Magdalene Mystery, set in Rome and Provence, a mystery/quest is about the search for the true Mary Magdalene, truth and lies in the media, and New Testament scholarship (OakTara 2013).

    I just completed a pilgrimage and did the walk to the Grotto – I will read The Magdalene Mystery. I am an author and am working on a novel that includes the story of Mary’s voyage to France.

  2. Hello Grandma Chris I’ve started reading your books and i’m loving them

  3. Thanks, Holly! Nice to meet a fellow Anglican author. Looking forward to your book… love your website and titles… God writes straight with crooked lines, an old favorite, one I used in my second novel, Offerings. I always hoped I was one of his crooked lines…
    All the best to you.
