Author. Nomad. Survivor.
I’m an award-winning author, technical writer, digital nomad, and international pet sitter extraordinaire.
I’m also a survivor living with C-PTSD, so I blog about trauma recovery, providing tips and tools for managing psychiatric injury, depression, and anxiety.
My memoir, One Reason to Live, follows my healing journey after multiple traumatic events and the end of a 15-year marriage. **Pre-order your copy on Amazon today!**

“Poignant, yet hopeful, this book will evoke many emotions in its readers. Christine’s wonderful travel stories, complete with a cast of adorable pets she takes care of, will have readers laughing, crying, and cheering.” ~ Kristi Elizabeth, San Francisco Book Review
“Rose chronicles her darkest moments…in forceful prose that will resonate with anyone who’s experienced despair, but she infuses the writing with morsels of that elusive hope that foreshadow her inspirational-but still relatable-comeback. Wanderlust fills up the spaces in between, making this as gripping as it is profound.” ~ Publisher’s Weekly BookLife “Editor’s Pick” Review.
“…raw, tender, and ultimately, far more moving than anything I’ve read in the genre before…If you often find memoirs to be lacking in soul, give this one a try, you won’t be disappointed!” ~ Beatrice Toothman, Manhattan Book Review

Very highly recommended.” ~ Jamie Michele, Readers’ Favorite
