Tell us a little about yourself. I was once patted on the head by Prince Philip when I was a baby. My great grandfather, and my grandfatheryes father and sonwere both riveters on the building of the Titanic. Tongue in cheek, I think it's fair to say, that as a family we accept no responsibility for the sinking of that infamous ship.
I live on the west coast of Canada with my husband and our grown up family. My cat Scottie is chief editor on all my books.
What was your motivation behind this project? Stories of my ancestors who served in the British Cavalry in Colonial India inspired my multi-award-winning, historical series Twilight of the British Raj, Book 1 Shadowed in Silk, Book 2 Captured by Moonlight, Book 3, Veiled at Midnight. Londonderry Dreaming is Christines first contemporary romance set in N. Ireland.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Shadowed in Silk is like all the novels in this trilogy--a serious Christian historical with strong spiritual takeaway, but also with what I like to call BIG LOVE STORY. This first book in the series deals with the subject of spousal abuse, but I believe I wrote it with a delicate hand. I don't shy away from the sad things that happen in this world, but I don't write graphically--truthfully yes, but holding back as much as I can.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Much of the heroine Abby Fraser's emotional journey was inspired by my mother's journey as an emotionally battered wife of an alcoholic. But I always believe in happy endings because I believe in the ultimate happy ending for those who love and follow Jesus Christ.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Francine Rivers is probably the strongest influence on my writing. Like Francine, I try to deal with those tough subjects but showing the hope on every page, that God can redeem a life no matter what has happened.
