Chris was born and raised in Chicago. Her father was a history professor and my mother was, and is, a voracious reader. She grew up with a love of history and books.

Her parents also love traveling, a passion they passed on. She wanted to see the places she read about, see the land and monuments from the time periods that fascinated her. She had the good fortune to travel extensively throughout Europe, the Near East, and North Africa.

She is a retired police detective. Chris spent twenty-five years in law enforcement with two different agencies. Herdesire to write came in her early teens. After she retired, shedecided to pursue that dream.


I currently live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband, four rescue dogs and a rescue horse.
