Questions about Christina
1. Have you always wanted to be a writer?
No. Yes. Sort of? As a child, I wanted to be a doctor, a vet, the president, a gymnast (HA!), and a few other things. I did a brief stint as a horse girl in elementary school, got into graphic design in high school and college, did some design work out of school, and then tripped into marketing. But I’ve always written and told stories.
2. How do you write for your day job and novels? Don't you burn out?

3. When were you diagnosed with ADHD?
In my early 30s. A friend was telling me about some of their own mental health struggles, and much of their story felt familiar to me. They encouraged me to seek out a diagnosis, and I did! Understanding why my brain does the things it does helps me build structures and tools to get it to do more of what I want it to do,
