Christi was born and raised in the town of Marysville, Washington, a small suburb about thirty miles north of Seattle. After graduating from Western Washington University with a degree in Communications, Christi took a job with a CBS affiliate in the Creative Services Department. Over the years her lifelong love of writing was put to good use; in addition to writing over three hundred television commercials, she earned the position as head writer for a weekly television show.
Christi is an award-winning author of Along the Way Home, a Historical Western novel about life on the Oregon Trail, and the sequel, Tainted Dreams. She’s written a novella, A Mountain Man’s Redemption, and a short story, Retribution Road. She’s also expecting to release another book in June of 2018, titled Brokken Rising.
Currently, Christi lives in a small town in Oregon with her husband, and twin children. The location of the home holds a special place in Christi’s writing life; the view from her back door is a hill travelers looked upon years ago as they explored the Oregon Territory and beyond.
Christi is a member of Willamette Writers and The Ridge Writers, a local writing critique group.
