Christie lives with her husband and four children in an old brick farmhouse in southeastern Pennsylvania. She is a writer-of-stories, a-reader-of-books, a wife, and a mother. She declines to order those roles according to their importance but does admit to occasionally feeding her children cold cereal for dinner so that she can read just one more chapter.
In 2010, she received her PhD in English Literature from the University of Chicago and has taught literature and composition to undergraduates at the University of Chicago, the School of the Art Institute, Chicago, and the University of North Florida.
Christie is a Jesus-follower who believes God is writing a love story for every one of us. Her own life has been a journey of love, but it is through pain that the story of this love has been revealed.
