Christine Dorsey was born in Hagerstown, MD, but learned early (at 4 months) that staying in one place for long was not in the cards. She started school in Japan and had crossed the US by car before she was eight. As fate would have it she returned to Maryland and met the boy who had lived next door to her when she was born, the summer before her senior year of high school. They dated through college and married after graduation. That was forty-four years, three children and four grandchildren ago...and they are still going strong. Perhaps that's where she gets the inspiration for her "happily ever after" stories.

Christine has been a stay-at-home-mom, a teacher and, of course, a best-selling author. Her son-in-law suggested she share her books on e-books, so she is, with the help of many new friends, joining the 21st century. But she still loves playing around in history with her characters, and writing stories that had Romantic Times call her, "one of the most talented authors of the genre!"
