Hi E.A., first, tell us a little about yourself.

I’m an author who writes sweet and inspirational romance, contemporary young adult fiction, women’s fiction, and any other genre that catches my fancy. Most people don’t realize it, but I have learning disabilities, including dyslexia. It makes writing and editing a challenge at times, but the reward of seeing my books available for readers is worth it. I’m also autistic, which can make for some interesting challenges of its own.

What an inspiration you are. Lots of writers enjoyed reading as children. How about you? If so, what did you read?

I loved reading as a child (still do, actually). I spent hours reading my way through my local library’s children’s department. Most of what I read was fiction, but sometimes I picked out a nonfiction title. My favo…

Hi Christine, congratulations on your award. Let's talk about books and your writing. Many writers loved to read as children. How about you? If so, what did you read?

Huge reader as a child, and all the childhood favorites. It all started when my mother used to read to me as a child, and the book I remember a first was Heidi. I guess that’s why I live close to the Cascade Mountains that cross the border from Canada into Washington State which is where Sofi’s Bridge is set.

Why do you write?

LOL, it’s in my DNA. Can’t help but write. What pushed me to actually do the thing I had wanted to do all my life, and which I didn’t start until I was in my mid 40’s, was after a difficult time in my…

Looking In The Window: Hidden Or Shining

Heron Photo Courtesy of Google
The blue heron stood perfectly still in the warm morning sun on the white sandy beach of Destin, Florida. Six feet from a fishing pole and a bucket of bait, the two-foot tall skinny bird moved not a muscle, his head held high. The fisherman in a beige fishing cap waded barefoot into the white foamy breaking waves. He cast his line, and the blue heron slowly lifted his pencil thin legs, moving forward ever so precisely, ever so carefully. As soon as the fisherman gazed backward the bird straightened his slender body. When the fisherman faced forward again, the heron tentatively stepped with his long wiry feet positioning himself even closer to his goal. The moment the fisherman glanced at the pretty light blue creature this finely feathered piece of the shore’s landscape assumed his statuesque pose. Over and over he and the fisherman repeated the action.





     “He thinks he’s a stealth bird that we can’t see as long as he isn’t doing anything,” I told my h…
