Christina Brockett was born in Philadelphia to hippie parents. Her very early childhood was spent on communes where she learned to get along--ok mostly get along--with other children. At the beginning of elementary school, her parents divorced. She then moved and split her time between San Francisco and just outside of Washington, D.C.. Christina attended Boston College and the University of Maryland and upon graduation entered the consulting world and later worked in telecommunications.
When her children were born, Christina shifted to a career in real estate as an appraiser and agent so that she would have more time to be there for her kids. Soon after becoming a mother, Christina realized how ill-prepared she felt to be a parent. As an outlet for these feelings she began to write essays about those feelings of inadequacy. Over time she branched out and began speaking to other parents about their experiences which ultimately became the basis for her debut book, The Missing Pages of the Parent Handbook.
Between working, and acting as the mom chauffeur, Christina maintains a mom blog at momevolving.com . In addition, her work as appeared in the Frederick News Post, Frederick Magazine's City and County Guide , The Torpedo Factory Art Center and Getsparked.org. She lives outside of Washington, D.C. with her husband, two children and dog.
