"Coyote speaks to those that believe in things that cannot be seen
but that are felt so deeply that they are undeniable."
(Ch 2, p49)
About the Author
To Kill A Coyote (TKC) is Christina’s first book. She wrote it with the desire to share her story with others and encourage them to find and follow the dreams deep within their being. Christina believes strongly in our common humanity - we are all connected and we are all beautiful, unique parts of creation. Christina's story starts with heartbreak and leads to celebration.
Christina became a writer out of a need to make sense of the world. She is a sensitive, fun-loving person that loves adventure, especially in foreign lands, and has an unquenchable thirst to learn and understand as much as possible.
Christina's journey began in small town Iowa. Her intellectual curiosity led her to Princeton University where she played volleyball and basketball and earned a BA in Classical Archaeology (1994). The majority of her studies entailed Classics and Art History - both of which she has a high affinity for to this day. Later, Christina returned to school, earning her JD from the University of South Carolina School of Law (2009) due to her interest in energy policy.
After working as an Analyst for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory from March 2010-December 2013, Christina moved back to Iowa to be close to family and pursue her dream of being a writer and publishing To Kill A Coyote. She currently lives in Council Bluffs, IA.
