Christina spent her childhood behind the counter of her parents’ Thai restaurant in Weatherford, Texas,
her nose stuck in a book.Though she always loved to read and tell stories, for most of her life she never
dreamed of being a children’s book author. Her love of science led her to pursue an engineering degree,
then to work in science museums. With a little encouragement from her local SCBWI chapter, she discovered
she had many stories to tell. She is the author of the middle grade fantasy series,
THE CHANGELINGS (Jabberwocky, 2016), as well as the forthcoming picture book,
THE RAMBLE SHAMBLE CHILDREN (Nancy Paulsen Books, 2018). Her work has been awarded the Katherine Paterson
Prize for middle grade fiction from Hunger Mountain, the VCFA journal of the arts. Christina lives and
writes in Austin, Texas with her husband and two daughters.
