Born in Coventry two years before the start of the Second World War, Christine was the youngest of three children, her two brothers being several years older. To be safe from the bombing in Coventry, a city that was to experience huge amounts of damage, she was sent away to Yorkshire, to live with an aunt and uncle in Bradford, where she stayed for the duration of the war.
After the war she returned to live with her family, returning with a noticeable Yorkshire accent, which even now after many years of living in Cornwall, can still be detected.
Married to her beloved Jeffrey and with two children, they moved house several times until fate intervened and they finally moved to Cornwall in 1983, not to retire but to work. Thirty years later Christine and her husband are now both happily retired.
While her husband is busy in the garden she spends her time writing, something she's always done but not seriously until she retired from work. Since then it's become an addiction that cannot be cured!
