Christine Thackeray currently resides in Newberg, Oregon and is the mother of seven incredible children. She graduated from BYU with a B.A. in English in 1986, thanks to her devoted husband (hah, long story and this is the short answer.)
Daughter of author Jaroldeen Edwards, Christine has always loved writing, but more than writing itself she loves the sharing of ideas. As a young mother she was a frequent contributor to the local newspaper through both religious articles and letters to the editor. Later she designed a number of brochures for the town of Fairview, used to welcome new residents. She has participated in a number of technical writing projects including a nation real estate study and several university studies. She has also written numerous Roadshows, Christmas Programs and Young Women's events.
After her youngest child went to kindergarten, Christine decided to try writing her first novel. Surprisingly, it was recently accepted by Cedar Fort for publication in the spring of 2008 which will open an exciting new chapter in her life.
