Twenty years and many life lessons later (including cancer in 2006), Christine is happy to have survived it all.
A member of The National Association of Memoir Writers (NAMW), Christine is currently working on her memoir about life as an exotic dancer in her hometown of Waikiki.
Her published work can be found in The Moment: Wild, Poignant, Life-Changing Stories from 125 Writers and Artists Famous & Obscure, SMITH Magazine, Guide to Literary Agents, Scribd, Salon, and Anaheim Examiner. Interviews include: National Association of Memoir Writers (Memoir Writer of the Month), Dave Ursillo (Renegade Spotlight), LA Talk Radio, and Power Women Magazine.
Her essay State of Mind, about her serious bout with clinical depression became an instant feature on the popular publishing site Scribd, earning Christine a "Rising Author" spot in 2010.
Her piece, Voluntary Termination was featured in SMITH Magazine, which was later published (“Sunset Strip”) alongside such artists as Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love), Melissa Etheridge, and Stephen Tobolowsky (Glee, Groundhog Day, Seinfeld, Californication) in the highly anticipated anthology, The Moment (Harper Collins) – available in book stores everywhere.
As noted in her guest column for Chuck Sambuchino's Guide to Literary Agents website, Christine is an avid supporter of equal rights. She is a member of celebrity photographer Adam Bouska and partner Jeff Parshley's NOH8 Campaign and founded Another way to say it Greetings, a greeting card project that caters to her friends of the GLBT community.
Christine brings her love of the coast to California where she has lived since 1996.
