Christine Carbo grew up in Gainesville, Florida, until she moved to Kalispell, Montana, when she was twelve. After earning a pilot’s license, pursuing various adventures in Norway, and a brief stint as a flight attendant, she got an MA in English and Linguistics and taught at a community college in Montana. She still teaches, in a vastly different realm, as the owner of a Pilates studio. She is the recipient of the Womens' National Book Association Pinckley Prize, the Silver Falchion Award and a finalist for the High Plains book Award. She and her husband live in Whitefish, Montana, with their three kids, one incredibly silly dog, and one very self-possessed cat. Find out more at ChristineCarbo.com.
