I was born January 9, 1948 in Hollywood, California as Christine Irene Rapoza, thus the name I. Christie. My mother is from Paris, France and my father from Fall River, Mass. I've learned neither French or Portuguese.
I started writing short stories in sixth grade, then poems which became long odes. My serious venture into writing and sharing my stories began after an acquaintance introduced me to Xena and her fan fic. Thank you wherever you are.
I work on various art projects like beading, painting, embroidery, woodcarving, jewelry making using gemstones, and whatever art that catches my attention and I think I can do it.
When I retired I moved out of Southern California to Oregon.
I share my household with Charlie, a tri-colored Aussie/Sheltie; Kahvi, a merle Aussie/Blue Heeler; 4 cats, (Cleopatra, Cagney, Lacey and Maggie;) and 3 parakeets.
