Hey there! Thanks for checking out my blog. I’m Kate Christie, a lesbian fiction writer currently residing in the Pacific Northwest. My first novel, Solstice, was released by Bella Books in March 2010; my second, Leaving L.A., in January 2011; and my third, Beautiful Game, in July 2011. In March 2012, I decided to break out on my own with Gay Pride & Prejudice, a queer variation on Jane Austen’s classic romance novel. Family Jewels followed in September 2012, and Flight in December 2013. In the Company of Women, a WWII romance set on the US home front, was released by Bella Books in June 2015. My latest titles, the Girls of Summer series, feature strong women competing to play soccer for the US Women’s National Team at the 2015 World Cup. To read descriptions of each book along with first chapters, please visit my web site at www.katejchristie.com.
In addition to being an author of lesbian fiction, I am a parent of multiple “littles” as we call them. My wife, Kris, gave birth to our first daughter, Alex, in February 2011, and our twins Ellie and Sydney in April 2013. Whew…
My intent is to use this blog to ruminate on fiction-writing and parenting, to explore the differences between the two and any intersections, along with any other topic that seems interesting on any given day. Although as a parent of small fries I may have to work to find time and energy to write, I plan to check in here as often as I can. Wish me luck!
Thanks for visiting, and feel free to share any feedback. Happy reading and writing to all!
