Christa Fleming, or Martina her preferred name, was born and raised in Greenville, North Carolina. She is the eldest of four children born to two amazing parents, Johnny and Mary Ann. At a young age, Martina was always jotting down stories and creating notebooks full of characters. Along the way, that passion was forgotten as she ventured off into other adventures. She attended East Carolina University majoring in biology with a minor in Spanish. Upon graduation, she went on to become a paramedic and served her community as a volunteer. With a few years of experience under her belt, Martina was accepted into Methodist University where she went on to obtain a master’s degree in physician assistant studies. She now practices medicine as a general practitioner. In her free time, she loves staying fit at the gym or walking her rambunctious red-golden retriever, Shiloh. Other activities include serving with the children and youth at her local church and spending time with family and friends. Along the way, she rediscovered her love of writing. Her goal is to touch lives with her stories.
