Today on Murders, Mysteries and  Mayhem Stephen Campbell welcomes one of his writing favorites, Christine Kling. Christine has spent more than thirty years living on and around boats and has cruised the waters of the North and South Pacific, the Atlantic, and the Caribbean.  
When she was married, Christine helped her husband build a 55-foot custom sailing yacht.  They sailed through the Panama Canal to St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands where they chartered their yacht for over two years. While in the islands, Christine received her 100-ton Auxiliary Sail Captains license.
It was her sailing experience that led her to set her first suspense novel, SURFACE TENSION, on the New River in Fort Lauderdale.  Featuring Florida female tug and salvage captain, Seychelle Sullivan, the first book was followed by CROSS CURRENT and BITTER END.  The fourth book in her series, WRECKERS’ KEY was released in February 2007. 
In 2011, she retired from her position as an English professor at Broward College to write and cruise full-time aboard Talespinner. Her fifth novel, CIRCLE OF BONES (2013), a big sailing thriller set down in the Caribbean, was recently published by Thomas & Mercer.  
An avid dog owner, Christine now sails the waters of the Bahamas and the US eastern seaboard with her new pup, Barney, an 11-pound Yorkshire Terror.
