ABOUT CHRISTINA: It all began when I was nine, curled under my covers, listening to my father read Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien. That’s where the beauty and power of storytelling came to life for me. I was so inspired that I started a writing group in 4th grade. All my friends came over and we’d write stories and share them. When I was ten, I submitted my first short story to a magazine. It was rejected. I thought I was a terrible writer. I put writing aside and decided to become a teacher.

It was after teaching and traveling internationally for ten years that I decided to tackle my bucket list. ‘Write a book’ happened to be on it. I wrote that book. It was awful, just as I suspected it’d be. But a very strange thing happened. I realized I liked writing. Finally I’d found that outlet to share all the crazy, wild stories floating in my head.
I was hooked. I wrote and wrote. Finally, I snagged a fabulous agent, Jeff Ourvan. He submitted GILDED to publishers and found a home for it with my wonderful editor, Miriam Juskowicz at Skyscape. From there I wrote two more books in that series- SILVERN and BRAZEN- and then sold THE PRINCESS AND THE PAGE to Andrea Pinkney, my editor at Scholastic Press.

Besides writing, I love traveling, running, playing light sabers with my two Jedi warriors, and eating dark chocolate. I’m slightly obsessed with books. My next challenge to conquer on my bucket list is to visit all the continents, but I’ve heard Antarctica is quite cold. And that just might be my greatest challenge.
