Christine is a graduate of Washington State University, where she received a BA in Interior Design. And true to form of using mostly her 'right brain', she splits her time between her commercial design career and her imaginary world of writing. She lives in the scenic Pacific Northwest where she enjoys hiking, camping and photographing many of the wonderful places that served as inspiration for her Charmed Trilogy and her current Men of Brahm Hill series. Her biggest reward in life comes on any given day when one of her books connects with a reader because she herself is such a lover of reading. Some of her favorite authors include Jane Austin, Lisa Kleypas and Julia Quinn.
