About Christi

cc3Christi 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.

  1. Hey Christi! I am crossing my fingers for your book. I hope it will be published soon, I would love to read it. Good luck with everything!

  2. After having the opportunity to read a portion of Christi’s upcoming novel, Along the Way Home, I must say I was left waiting for more! The description and detail wrapped within each line creates a sense so deep you feel as if you were there – as if you can actually feel the velvet softness of the main character’s dress, see the carvings within the banister of her home. It will be a great addition to any reader’s collection and I cannot wait to read it in full!

    • Jill,
      Thanks so much for the comment and for checking out my site. It is less than two months old and I still have a lot to learn so it is nice when I get visitors 🙂

      Thanks again for visiting!

      PS. I check out your site a few times a week…good stuff!

  3. Hi, Christi. What a great beginning! I admire how you draw the reader right into the story, and how you use dialogue to strengthen your characterizations. Like the other commentors, I’d love to read more, too. You’re in a re-write? I know how hard that is. But keep at it–you definitely have talent–and you have some great characters started here. And never, ever give up! Good luck!
