20 Things about Christine (CG) Powell

Christine keeps a jar of Sea Monkeys on her writing desk for inspiration (more like an ADD driven diversion...Squirrel!).

Christine spends too much time chatting up the way too cute mailman.



Christine has a crafting hobby that is out of control (like a bad episode of hoarders, but with beads, yarn and glitter).  She is also the owner of The Book Swag Shop.

Christine’s favorite meal is fruit, bread, cheese and wine. But she is okay if that meal is minus the fruit, bread and wine.




Christine loves winter, especially when it snows and she can curl-up by the fire and drink hot coco with Baileys.

Christine loves Sci-fi shows like Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate...But also loves science shows such as Through the Wormhole, Ancient Aliens, Hunting the Elements.

Christine started her writing career in February of 2011 when she told her family she was going to write a book. (Her husband and kids laughed and said “Yeah, right”.)  She sent her first novel to the editor 3 months later.

Christine keeps a motley crew of ninjas, cabana boys, minions, and dwarves (the Snow White kind). 

Christine’s favorite Avenger is Thor.  Christine’s favorite eye-candy is Thor.  Christine’s imaginary boyfriend is Thor....




Christine was raised in Louisiana’s Cajun country where her mother’s family live.  Even though she has spent the last 15 years in Virginia, she is still Cajun at heart.

Christine was an inflight electronics technician and spent time in Guam, Diego Garcia, and Wake Island. (The ironic part is that she is not a fan of the beach)

Christine read encyclopedias as a teen they were her favorite books up until her husband introduced her to the World of Darkover by Marion Zimmer Bradley.

Growing up Christine wanted to be a Geologist that love stayed with her into adulthood and prompted her to become a GIA Gemologist.  Gemstones became a passion and lead her to the art of making jewelry.



Christine took a hula hoop class and still can’t hula hoop.

Christine is the proud owner of Pokémon Silver, Fire Red, Emerald, Sapphire, Ruby, Leaf Green, and Pearl. (Rangers is lame!!!)

Christine is Dyslexic and Ambidextrous. (Sill can’t tell her left from her right) She never let this stand in her way of writing.

Christine is not as outgoing as she would like to be, but still keeps trying.

Christine is not much of a drinker, but still likes Rum and Diet Coke, or Amaretto and pineapple juice on occasion.  She also enjoys Rummy Bears and Jello shots.

Christine was in pageants when she was a kid, she still has the 36 crowns she won and wears them during gatherings to remind her family she is still Queen.


    

At the theater when the screen goes dark and the room gets quiet at the beginning of the film, Christine has been known to say “Shhhh...we’re having sex.” loud enough for everyone to hear.
