Author of Energize Your Retirement: Stories of Passionate Pursuits and 2014 North American Book Award winner for General Non-fiction.
Christine was born in New York and after college relocated to California to teach junior high school. She holds a master's degree in Curriculum Design from California State University. She returned to school when her last child left for college and received a certificate in Technical and Professional Writing from San Francisco State University.<br />
Having worked since she was 22 years old, Christine retired from a varied career as a teacher, corporate trainer and grant writer. She considers writing and publishing “pure pleasure.” Christine calls her retirement the start of a winning trifecta, pursuing three perfect pastimes: creating new friendships, learning new things, and writing about the journey.
