"Coyote speaks to those who believe in things that cannot be seen
but are felt so deeply that they cannot be denied."
(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 joy & 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 renewable 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. Christina lived in Council Bluffs, Iowa from the Spring of 2015 through November 2020 and self-published TKC in October 2016.
In November 2020, Christina moved to South Carolina to fulfill her dream of living by the beach and with the intention to become a part of the legal community in South Carolina, working to create greater social and environmental justice for all communities in our nation and world.
