Christine Ellis, Esq.
Christine Ellis, JD/MBA worked in Corporate America until she met her husband, Dean, a United States Marine, and began adventuring around the world with him after a whirlwind romance. Dean had been bitten by the theatre bug years ago, and began sharing his interest with Christine when they visited Shakespeare’s Globe in London during their honeymoon.
Christine added M-O-M to her credentials when she and Dean welcomed their first child into the family. Dean could not wait to introduce the baby to the world’s preeminent dramatist. Christine decided he shouldn’t have to wait. A lover of all words and a voracious reader, Christine decided to give up writing contracts and instead write something her whole family could enjoy reading.
The Ellis family currently lives in a small village in Ginoza, Japan, where Christine is a College Professor lecturing on business and law subjects. She also does pro bono legal work. Christine enjoys exploring new countries and cultures with her family and her camera.
