Andrea Parisi, Library Media Specialist, Lake Nona Middle School
“Christina Farley may be an author now but once a teacher, always a teacher! Flexible, accommodating, knowledgeable, personable and dynamic are a few words that come to mind. Christina was able to develop sessions based on the needs of our school and conducted workshops on 3 different topics while visiting us. She was able to get the content across while captivating her audience. Imagine middle school students who were extremely appreciative and thankful for being invited to her presentations…and who then not only told their teachers about it, but shared quotes and tips with their friends on Instagram! We would have her back any time!”
Lori Martin, Edgewater High School
“Christina Farley’s visit to our school still echoes in our hallways as the students and staff thoroughly enjoyed her educational and captivating lesson on the writing process! The value of this lesson is beyond words!”
Mrs. Iriarte, 7th grade honors/gifted language arts, Celebration K-8 School
“Christina Farley gave an entertaining and engaging presentation including audiovisual materials, funny anecdotes, and souvenir posters for the kids to take with them. The students are still talking about her visit.”
Janet Anderson, Media Specialist, Lockhart Middle School
“Christina Farley visited Lockhart Middle School and spoke to hundreds of students throughout the day. Our students were engaged and loved having a published author come and speak to them. Students said her demonstrations representing the writing process were extremely helpful and memorable. Her background as a teacher is evident and her enthusiasm is contagious. Our students have constantly been asking to check-out Gilded and Silvern and are continuously asking when Ms. Farley can return for more book talks! Thank you for providing our students with such a wonderful experience.”
Ms. Dees, 3rd grade teacher at Keene’s Crossing Elementary
“Christina Farley came to our elementary school for Teach In this year. Since she used to teach at our school, the kids were very excited to see her. She gave an incredible presentation to the various grade levels regarding her life as a writer. She went through the writing process with them, and she did it in a way that was exciting, engaging, and fun! After her presentation, she signed posters for all of the kids. My classroom was a revolving door with excited kids waiting to get their own autographed poster!! They are still talking about it and a few have asked when she will be coming again to talk to them!”
Tricia Whitaker, Director of Library/Media Services, The First Academy
“Our students loved interacting with Christina Farley. Her presentation was engaging and informative. Our students were especially responsive to her story about her first rejection letter when she was in fourth grade! Her perseverance in pursuing her dream spoke to them very strongly. Her books were a big hit and we are all waiting for “Brazen” to come out!”

I’ve published 5 books, traditionally and independently, and have had my work optioned and purchased by a major Hollywood studio. Currently, I’m represented by a literary agent. I’ve taught writing workshops world-wide and have a master’s degree in teaching. My experience in writing is with picture books, middle grade, YA, and adult novels as well as screenplays.
