A chronic daydreamer with a vivid imagination, Christine wrote her first novel at age 11 when—after having been a Nancy Drew fan for a number of years—she put pen to paper to plot a daring diamond heist—in narrative only, of course. The book was lost over the course of time, but Christine never lost her love of reading and story-telling.
Over the years, Christine has worked in banking, production accounting in the oil industry, dispatching and office management, bookkeeping, and municipal government. She holds certificates in Payroll Administration and Local Authority Administration (NACLAA). However, her passion for the written word has never waned.
For Christine there is nothing more fascinating than the endless potential presented by a star-studded sky; little more enthralling than a gripping mystery or suspenseful intrigue; and nothing more heart-warming than the triumphant conclusion to a turbulent romantic relationship. With those compelling interests, what career could possibly be more suitable than that of a writer?
She began writing seriously for publication after the birth of her son when she and a friend teamed up to write their first novel, TO SHARE A SUNSET, which was picked up by Dorchester Publishing of New York for publication. The partnership dissolved when Christine’s friend moved to another city and Christine began her solo career with the publication of her futuristic romance novel, ASCENT TO THE STARS. She went on to write a number of novels in various sub-genres of romance: futuristic, Western historical, and suspense that were published by Dorchester Publishing and Harlequin/Silhouette. Her suspense novel, DANGER'S KISS, won first place in the “Heart of Romance” competition, named Best Single Title Contemporary, and her next romantic suspense, A SEASON OF MIRACLES, also triumphed when it won second place in the competition.
Christine is of French and Scottish ancestry (the Rose clan). The oldest of three children, she was born and raised in Canada. She currently lives on the Canadian prairies near Medicine Hat, Alberta with her husband and two adorable Pomeranians.
