Christine Daigle is a neuropsychologist, coffee aficionado, and scrabble demon living in the great white north (in southern Ontario, where it’s actually quite sunny). Her short works have most recently appeared in Apex Magazine, Grievous Angel, and the Automatons & Airships anthology, under Christine Purcell which was her name before she got hitched. She is an active HWA member.
The Emerald Key blends alternate history steampunk adventure with elements of horror, mystery and urban fantasy. The game is afoot and Ember Quatermain, the brilliant daughter of the legendary explorer, must draw upon all her abilities in order to save the day. Her path is fraught with dirigibles, necromancy, lamia, the lost tomb of a great ancient warrior king, and the charming Peter Styles.
