About Me

I am an author, artist and accountant. After I failed to become an airline pilot, I quit my ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with ‘A’, and decided to concentrate on my writing. Since I have Project Completion Disorder, I am one of the few authors I know with NO unfinished novels.

I have my hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, I’m a CPA, but having grown up with art all around me (my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected me, as it were.

I want to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. I use characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth.

Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and I get an art business. I do local art and craft shows, as well as sending my art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.

*****

I write historical fantasy novels, mostly set in Ireland, and a contemporary romance based on my parents’ 30-year search for true love. Don’t miss information on Celtic myth and history, as well as practical travel planning tips, and hidden places, in my travel books.

  12. Green Dragon . . . I LOVE your name! And your blog.site. Beautiful photos, words, books, but, I must admit that I’m entranced by your beadwork most of all!! Having been a bead artist myself, I’m deeply drawn to your designs. I’ll check back later and do a little more browsing.
    Thank you for stopping by and following Mocha Muse. I greatly appreciate it!!

  18. Hi Christy, I recently read and reviewed your book. I enjoyed it much! When I was tagged for this writer’s Q&A, I thought it would be fun to tag you and find out more about your characters and you as a writer. If you’d like to participate, here’s where I tagged you: https://sherijkennedyriverside.wordpress.com/2016/04/10/i-inquiry/ Either way, cheers!

  19. Hi Christy. Thanks for visiting and following my blog. It’s always nice to meet a fellow writer of historical fiction. The Celtic era was so mythical and also fairly female-friendly from what I understand of it. It must be very rewarding to write about it.

    Great blog! I saw on Goodreads you haven’t claimed your author’s page and only one of your books are up there. You may want to join the forum so you can control what’s up there, and you already have one follower. 🙂
