A native of Southern California, Christine Pope has been writing stories ever since she commandeered her family’s Smith-Corona typewriter back in the sixth grade. Her short fiction has appeared in Astonishing Adventures, Luna Station Quarterly, and the journal of dark fiction, Dark Valentine.
Her paranormal novella, Playing With Fire, was released on August 5, 2010, followed by Sympathy for the Devil in December 2010. Releases for 2011 included Breath of Life, a science fiction reinterpretation of the classic Beauty and the Beast story, and Bad Vibrations, a paranormal romance romp featuring a psychic, a ufologist, and alien conspiracies.
Not one for being pigeonholed into just one sub-genre of romance, Christine Pope writes as the mood takes her, and her work encompasses paranormal romance, fantasy, horror, science fiction, and historical romance. She blames this on being easily distracted by bright, shiny objects, which could also account for the size of her shoe collection. After spending many years in the magazine publishing industry, she now works as a freelance editor and graphic designer in addition to writing fiction. She lives with her husband and an explosively fluffy Pomeranian mix in the San Gabriel Valley of Southern California, and in fact just returned to the town where she was born, thus disproving the theory that you can’t go home again.
