When not writing or cracking a whip at her artists, Christine pays her bills by working as an administrative assistant for the Hammond Development Corporation, doing economic development projects for the city of Hammond, Indiana. In her spare time, she also enjoys traveling, reading, spending time her boyfriend, playing with her cat, watching Star Trek and cooking tasty things.
