Falling in love with literature was easy for her. As a child, she was a voracious reader and loved to write. When it came time to go to college at Georgian Court University, choosing a major was easy - English Literature. In 1998, with a Bachelors in English Lit strapped to her hip, she wasn't sure which avenue to take so she went on to earn her teacher's certification and taught middle and high school English for nine years before writing her first novel.
Born in Aurora, Colorado, the daughter of an Army helicopter pilot and a stay-at home mom, she moved all over the country as a child before settling down in New Jersey. Christine currently stays home to write while her husband works and her two boys attend elementary school. Don't bother her too much during football season - she's either cheering on her boys or crying in her pint glass over yet another Jets loss.
