Christine’s funny and heartbreaking memoir of infidelity, cancer, colicky twins, and the flood in her basement Blueprint for Daylight was recently excerpted in Connecticut’s Emerging Writers: An Anthology.
“Horses,” her experimental poem of loss, won the 2017 Knightville Poetry Contest. Mark Doty was the contest judge. The poem is featured in the 2018 issue of the New Guard and was a 2019 Pushcart Prize nominee. Her essays have appeared in literary journals including Longreads for “Renovating a Family” and Woven Tale Press’ Selected Works for, “Confessions of a Make Up Addict,” which received a mention in Publisher’s Weekly.

“I’ve Heard You Make Cakes” was selected by The Moth for its national podcast.
