Christen Notrelle was born in Brisbane, Australia and has lived in the UK and Canada. A self-confessed travel addict, Christen has jotted down book and plot ideas in cozy cafes, crowded hostels, and more recently, gorgeous pensions around the world. She spends copious amounts of time reading, drinking far too much coffee, and trying to fit in a tap dancing class, playtime with the dog, watching sport, and attempting a science degree.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Mr Galliano's Circus by Enid Blyton because I got to hitch a ride with the circus and live a life on the road. Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder because it introduced me to philosophy and had a great mystery to go along with it. One For The Money by Janet Evanovich...because it was the first time a book had me rolling around in stitches on the kitchen floor at 3am trying to stop crying from laughing so hard! Veronika Decides To Die by Paula Coelho...wow! The Pinballs by Betsy Byars because it made me appreciate my family.
What do you read for pleasure?
I will read anything by Janet Evanovich and Jostein Gaarder. In the last few years I have added paranormal novels to my required reading! I love Richelle Mead, Amanda Hocking, Stacia Kane, Jana Oliver, Stephenie Meyer and Kendare Blake.
