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. Her lifelong love of writing was put to good use—she wrote/produced over three hundred television commercials.
Christi is an award-winning author of Along the Way Home, a Historical Western about life on the Oregon Trail, and the sequel, Tainted Dreams. Her third book, a novella titled A Mountain Man’s Redemption, was recently adapted into a screenplay. She’s also written a short story, Retribution Road. Her next book is expected to release late 2019.
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 The Ridge Writers, a local writing critique group.
