The author was born in Scotland. At age twelve she migrated with her parents and seven siblings to Tasmania, Australia where she lived in a house built by convicts.
At twenty-one she graduated with a nursing degree and set out across the Pacific to U.S.A. where she met and married her engineer husband. They have four children
and seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
She is well known as a speaker and teacher in both U.S.A. and overseas. She has lived in South Korea and China and travelled in Europe, India, Nepal, Central Asia, New Zealand and Central America.
This rich background has given much food for thought that has found its way into magazine and newspaper articles, poems and songs.
This is her first book. Since publishing "Destination Holiness" three other books have been published by Xulon Press;
"Life by the Lynn", "Table Time" and "The Wonder of Seven".
She is currently working on her fifth book which hopefully will be available the end of 2018.
Christie recently moved with her husband, Bob, from Kodiak, to Haines, Alaska. She continues to be involved in short term mission and ministry in USA and abroad.
