We want to thank Christina Lee for agreeing to be our July's Author of the Month. We loved having her here and we all hope you all Junkies found some great new reads among her fantastic books!
Hi Christina Lee and welcome to Bayou Book Junkie. Christina writes contemporary MF romance (New Adult and Adult), contemporary MM romance, and collaborates with Riley Hart on a NA MM series, Free Fall. Her latest solo effort, Regret (Under My Skin book 1, published 25 June 2017), was a sweet friends-to enemies-to lovers tale, and yay, there’s more to come! Rumour also has it that she’s just finished another book in the Free Fall series, though so far, we can’t find mention of a release date or a title (but rest assured, we will be keeping our eyes peeled!). She’s had a variety of careers and is now happily settled with her son and hubby in the Midwest.
BBJ: So Christina, we know that among other things you’ve been a wardrobe stylist, teacher and social worker, please tell us all about yourself and how you found yourself in the world of writing.
Christina: Hi there! Yes, I’ve had many different career experiences as a social worker, a special education teacher, a hand-stamped jewelry designer, and a wardrobe stylist in NYC. But it wasn’t until I got a part-time job writing a shopping column for a local newspaper that I decided to try my hand at fiction. The first book I wrote was a YA romance in 2008 and I’ve written many different age categories/genres since then (young adult, new adult, adult, LGBTQ) but always under the romance umbrella, because everyone under the rainbow deserves a happily-ever-after. ;-)
