Christine is a writer of essay, poetry, and memoir. Her recently completed memoir,  Blueprint for Daylight, is a funny and heartbreaking story of infidelity, cancer, colicky twins, and the flood in her basement. Christine looks forward to announcing its publication soon.

In the meantime, she is hard at work writing a follow up: Sewing Lessons.


Christine is the 2017 recipient of two literary awards: The Sarah Patton Stipend for her unpublished manuscript, Blueprint for Daylight, and The Knightville Poetry Award for her prose poem, “Horses.”
