Christina van Deventer is a girly-girl, mom to furry and scaly creatures and wife to a real-life Viking. She loves beautiful things, good company and she feels good food, good wine and great books have something fundamental in common: they make people happy.
When she is not writing, she loves creating magic in her African kitchen or craft room, or playing ESO, which is her virtual second home. Christina is always excited to hear from fellow bibliophiles!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Food. Just kidding. Most days, though, I would have to say it's coffee. Coffee might be the driving force behind everything I do. Then, once I'm caffeinated, I usually have a million ideas (not just for writing) going through my head and I find it impossible not to act on at least some of them. I love making things of all kinds, whether it's painting, sewing, cooking or writing, so most of the time the thought of working on my latest creative project will be enough to propel me from bed, or at night, keep me from going to sleep.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm a gamer, reader, traveler, family-fun, play-with-my-dog, walk-in-the-park, write-a-new-song kind of girl. The list goes on. I never lack for something to do, only for the time in which to do it. It doesn't help that I also think sleep is an activity :-)
