Christa Polkinhorn


Born and raised in Switzerland, Christa Polkinhorn has always had the desire to explore the world outside of her beautiful but tiny country. As a young woman, she traveled through Europe, came to the United States on an exchange program, and ended up staying. Her travels led her to China and Japan as well as South America. She studied literature and linguistics in Zurich and California. Now, she lives and works as writer and translator in southern California and divides her time between the United States and her native Switzerland. The tension and excitement this "double life" creates informs her literary work. Most of her novels take place in several countries. Aside from writing and traveling, Christa is an avid reader, a lover of the arts and dark chocolate.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this fascinating mix of teenage realism and mysterious fantasy world. The characters are believable and the writing is fast-paced and well-crafted. I look forward to Part Two! Christa Polkinhorn, author "An Uncommon Family" "Love of a Stonemason"
