Appearances


I love to teach for writing organizations, publishing groups, conferences, and book-related events. Subjects I teach include writing, editing, marketing and business tips/tricks for authors and small publishers.

"Congratulations Christine...you are a dynamic speaker. When people hear you speak, they are glued to you and your message."  P.N., client

"If you want a successful conference with a dedicated, energetic and fun faculty member - Christine should top your list!"  -- Paul Atreides, Las Vegas Writers Conference chair

"I enjoyed your classes at the Las Vegas Writers Conference. It was great getting to know you a little and I have to say thank you for always asking questions. I know that other attendees appreciated your enthusiasm and inclusiveness as much as I did. Weather you asked about us, or asked agents and authors questions when we froze. That journalism background shined through to the benefit of us all. Thank you." -- Miranda Boyer, LVWC attendee/student
