Christine lives in a tiny village in Northumberland which has breath-taking views and a brilliant pub.
In the past she has been – in no particular order – a journalist, film extra, fish and chip shop server, lecturer, cleaner, barmaid, researcher, solicitor, florist and petrol-pump attendant.
Presently, Christine works as a legal editor for the publishing arm of an international law services company.
Christine is currently working on a contemporary novel exploring the nature of family and belonging – whether, when blood, adoptive and marital family have all fallen short, a new family of friends can be forged by loyalty, support and shared values:
Fliss has been forced out of her first family by her adoptive sister. She is now walking out on her husband. She’s offered the chance of two new lives – one with her best friend and one with her birth family. The novel explores whether it’s possible to pick people from each past life to create the family she needs for the future.
