Get to know Christina...
Birthday? 28th October

When did you start writing? When I was about 5. Growing up in an old pre-war house teeming with history, I loved to make up stories while playing amongst my stuffed animals in the dark dusty rooms. That was the year I fell in love with words.

When and what and where did you first get published? My first two published poems "Ebola Virus" and "Firstborn" appeared in Dreams and Nightmares #58, January 2001.

What themes do you like to write about? I love apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic themes. There’s something hopeful about starting anew. I also love writing about space and how we might survive there. It really is the next frontier. Recently, I’ve enjoyed writing about life through haiku and senryu. It has been quite lovely — very introspective and meditative — precisely what I need in this time of my life.

What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work? The story that resonated most with me is Robert R. McCammon's post-apocalyptic masterpiece, Swan Song. I've read it at least 20 times over the years, each reading as thrilling and awe-inspiring as the one before.

When I first read Swan Song at 16, I had never encountered prose like that, so beautiful and intricately constructed, almost like a poem. His story was the perfect parable. Good versus evil, and an overall happy ending. I love that in fiction. It is a comfort.
