I was delighted when I discovered the word eclectic as it sounds so much finer than ne’er-do-well, the other choice some have used to describe my life. My curious nature has led me to many different roads, careers, and locations. I now weave those experiences and places into novels which explore questions of interest to me. I and my husband, Bert, the only man I’d have ever left Canada for or with, own a small photography business and write side-by-side when we’re not working the day job.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Suffer the Little Children

What is it we do that drives our children from us? To address that question, I wrote Suffer the Little Children. In a wilderness community in northwestern Alberta, a family falls apart; a child runs away; a parent can’t explain why. Rather than continuing to focus on the tragedy, the mother, Anne Mueller, determines to stop living in denial and begins questioning conventional explanations as she digs toward the truth. Her resolve makes her aware of the resources around her: a Centuries-old harmony modeled by Anne’s Cree Native friends, the restorative power of nature, and the caring concern buried in her community’s history. The wilderness, however, provides the ultimate incentive. It pits Anne against her greatest fear, exacting her commitment to uncover what drove her child away and do whatever it takes to bring her home.

 

 

Truth – Yours, Mine. Ours (Coming Soon)

Twenty-five years after the war, a Vietnam veteran and a Vietnam War protester meet as if by chance and begin a conversation about the war, their lives, and life itself. They continue that conversation for three and a-half years through journals which move back-and-forth between Alabama and British Columbia. Then they meet again, and a beautiful love story begins. They constructed these memoirs much like a photo album- a one page glimpse into the many events and thoughts of their lives running concurrently, offering not only their personal experiences but also a flavor of the times. Their insightfulness and honesty present a unique look into the 60s generation, the Vietnam War, and love.

 

 

Christina’s Cause:

Heifer International (http://www.heifer.org/)

Started by a farmer after WWII who carried dairy cattle to Europe to offset starvation, the organization provides a variety of agricultural solutions to starvation and poverty by training a requesting family in their choice of animal or crop husbandry, so that they can use their choice to feed themselves and produce excess for income. It also requires that they share offspring with another family so that the project revitalizes communities, not just individuals. It works wondrously to build health and wealth throughout the world. Bert and I have purchased so far, two water buffaloes for Vietnam.
