Christine first began writing at the age of 9, taking inspiration from her favourite reading material. If a
birthday party wasn't to her taste, she could be found under a bed, or in the cupboard under the stairs, with a torch and whatever book or comic she could find in her hosts' bookcase.
At age 11, Christine was the first ever Girl Guide to be awarded the Writer's Badge, and she was encouraged to continue writing by the Tester, a professional writer herself.
Short stories and articles for children's magazines followed, with explorations into poetry and competition entries.
In 1999, Christine was commissioned by Hodder and Stoughton to write a book for their famous "Teach Yourself" imprint. Titled "Planning a Wedding", this book has now been updated and re-published.
Christine's next project, as well as continuing to write for magazines and her own pleasure, was the novel "Charity Begins", which is based on her 7 years working for the retail divisions of large charities.
Christine continues to study and write, is a member of the Freelance Writer's Association and teaches writing skills
