You can read 3 free episodes of each book in her Kindle Vella gaslamp fantasy series, Grimoire Society of Dark Acts, here. She also has some free pieces on Wattpad. Her passion is editing other authors’ manuscripts to help make them the best they can be.

Aside from editing and fiction writing, Christie has hosted three podcasts/videocasts and has interviewed hundreds of authors, including award-winning and bestselling authors like Karen Kingsbury, Peter Straub, Robert Sawyer, and Peter James. Her current podcast is called Lurking for Legends, a live read videocast, and she hosts it with epic fantasy author Richard H. Stephens and science fiction author David M. Kelly every second Tuesday once a month at 8 p.m. ET.
