Christine E. Schulze

Biography

Christine E. Schulze has been creating books since she was too young to even write them in words. Her collection of YA and MG fantasy and Christian Fantasy books, The Amielian Legacy, is comprised of series and stand-alone books which can all be read separately but which weave together to create an amazing fantasy.

One of her main aspirations for The Amielian Legacy is to be able to create grand fantasy adventures with characters that connect with readers from all different backgrounds. She prides herself on including diversity in her books; right now her focus is on racial diversity and people with disabilities.

Some of her exciting ventures include her publications with Old Line Publishing, Bloodmaiden and Lily in the Snow, as well as The Stregoni Sequence and The Chronicles of the Mira with Writers-Exchange in both paperback and electronic forms. She is also a proud author at Book By You, a publisher specializing in personalized books, and is happy to release Song Quest, Black Lace, and Dark Embrace with them.

Her most recent project includes the professional re-editing and remastering of her YA Fantasy series, The Hero Chronicles, which is anticipated for re-release starting in 2015 under the new name A Shadow Beyond Time. For this series, she has also brought an amazing new co-author onto her team, Kira Lerner.

Christine currently lives in Belleville, IL, but you can visit her on her blog: http://christineschulze.com/

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Writing of course! As well as whatever day job I am involved with at the time. I am a definite work-a-holic, but while I like seclusion for writing, I tend to be quite social otherwise. No matter whether I am working with children or adults, I love being around and meeting new people, helping them and sharing my creativity with them!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Another great interest of mine is music. I compose on occasion--when I muster the patience for it. ^_^ I also love to sing. I've taken to recording songs lately and have a friend who is the "Master" at editing and mastering them for me. No originals yet, only favorite songs from favorite artists of mine. When I get the chance, I intend to start uploading them to my Youtube page.

Besides music, I also love gaming--well, where The Legend of Zelda games are concerned anyway. I'm actually extremely biased in their favor. My favorite for ages was the first I ever played, Ocarina of Time. I think Wind Waker might tie; it was such a delight to play, and the characters were so quirky and original. Skyward Sword DEFINITELY ties. Even though they made me replay in Hero Mode and I had no clue what that meant at the time and wanted to chuck the controller across the room for having to start the game all over again--

But I digress. I would say a final big thing I like to do is go for walks. Not just any ol' walks though. I like to explore nature trails, especially the kind that wind through the woods. Someday, I hope to travel, whether for business or personal. I'll explore every trail in the world then, leaving no rock unturned.
