Biography

Christine Brand - Author of short stories, flash fiction and #vss.

Christine began self-publishing in January 2014, starting with a short story and then finding a liking for writing flash fiction.

Although she has been writing for many years, it is only now that Christine has had the courage to publish and share her work with the world. Christine has also written some poetry and is working on a novel. She is the author of five short eBooks - all available to download free from Smashwords.com and other online retailers. Christine also tweets "Very Short Stories" (#vss) on Twitter, and has collected these, with illustrations, into a further three eBooks.

From South London / Surrey, Christine served seven years as a Medical Assistant in the Royal Air Force, subsequently working for the NHS. She is now hoping to pursue a career in motor mechanics. Christine is also a voluntary member of staff with the Air Cadet Organisation.

Christine enjoys writing, painting and other creative crafts and creates all her cover art herself.
