Oh, hello there!

I'm so glad you are here!  Thanks for stopping by.  The formal stuff is below, but I just want you to know that I'm so blessed and grateful to be in this space.  I've waited many, MANY years to be able to say, "I'm a writer" when asked what I do at parties.  So, thank you, if you are here, it means you were at least curious and for that, I'm grateful.  Drop me a note in my email or head over to my socials, although, here is where you'll really learn about me.  I'll share all the book details, life's adventures and business happenings right in my blog, so sign up to be on the email list.

About Christene...

Christene's love for storytelling is deeply rooted in her experiences, both personal and professional. Growing up in the Midwest, she developed a profound appreciation for nature and the outdoors. This love only deepened when she and her husband purchased a cabin in the Northwoods of Minnesota, a place that would become not just a retreat but a wellspring of inspiration for her writing.

Before pursuing writing full-time, Christene dedicated over two decades to the field of education, working as both a special education teacher and a district administrator. Her work with students, particularly those with special needs, has left an indelible mark on her writing, infusing it with empathy, understanding, and a keen insight into the human experience.

Christene's journey as a writer began with a desire to share stories that resonate with readers of all ages. Her debut middle school book, "Ember of the Woods," is a testament to her ability to craft narratives that are both captivating and deeply meaningful. Set in the wild backdrop of the Northwoods, the story follows a young girl grappling with loss and change as she navigates the challenges of a new life. Through her protagonist's eyes, Christene explores themes of grief, resilience, friendship, and the healing power of faith and nature.

One of the hallmarks of Christene's writing is her ability to create vivid, immersive worlds that transport readers to new and exciting places. Whether it's the rugged beauty of the Northwoods or the tranquil serenity of a lake at dawn, her descriptive prose paints a picture so vivid that readers can almost feel the crispness of the air and hear the rustle of leaves in the wind.

Her writing is about connection. Through her characters, she explores the complexities of human relationships, delving into the bonds that tie us together and the emotions that drive us apart. Her characters are nuanced and relatable, each with their own struggles and triumphs, making them resonate with readers on a deep, emotional level.

Outside of writing, Christene's love for the outdoors is evident in her hobbies. She enjoys camping, hiking, and kayaking, finding solace and inspiration in the beauty of the natural world. She's an avid artist and sees beauty in creating. She cherishes time spent with her family, including her husband, children, and pets, who have been her steadfast companions on her writing journey.

As she continues to write and explore new stories, Christene remains committed to creating narratives that inspire, uplift, and connect with readers from all walks of life. Her writing is a testament to the power of storytelling to heal, to teach, and to unite us in our shared humanity.


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities and love hearing from readers! Let's connect.
