Christine Van Mater


Christine Van Mater writes alternate history novels because it is as yet the most practical use she has found for her MA in Medieval History. The Nativity of St. Genevieve is her first full-length novel,but she has plans for many, many more, both in Genevieve's world and in her pioneering sub-genre of Appalachian Steampunk. In her spare time she knits, roleplays, and serves as Dispenser-of-Manna-From-Above for a pair of not very bright parakeets. She can be found online on Twitter, Facebook, and her Blog, generally while she ought to be writing.
