My super-short bio:
Wants to be Gryffindor, but is really Hufflepuff.
My social media bio:
Hufflepuff. Honeybadger. Crisis Unicorn. Nuclear Submarine. Miracle Berry. Writer. Mom. Contralto. Night Cheese Eater. Memoir TELL ME EVERYTHING YOU DON’T REMEMBER (2017) and Novel THE GOLEM OF SEOUL (2018), both forthcoming from Ecco.
Christine works at a dining room table at which no one actually eats surrounded by piles of teaching materials and student papers that need constant grading and she writes with a needy geriatric wiener dog who smells like corn chip Fritos on her lap and another needy wiener dog with feral survival tendencies who is up to no good somewhere in the kitchen. She should be running and exercising, but instead she is baking cookies and eating them. By herself. In front of her laptop. Trying to revise her novel. She is very pale.
