Readers become writers, and Christina Dodd has always been a reader. As she was growing up, she read everything, but discovered, because she likes humor, that she liked romance best. In romance, the relationship between one man and one woman holds center stage, and that’s always good for a laugh.

A woman wants things like world peace, a clean house, and a deep and meaningful relationship based on mutual understanding and love. A man wants things like a Craftsman router with attachments, undisputed control of the TV remote, and a red Corvette which will miraculously make his bald spot disappear.

So while Christina was working as a draftsman, she would read during the lunch hour, go back to work to design a sawmill, and plot the conclusion of the story in her mind. The book never ended like that, and she liked her endings better. When her first daughter was born, she told her husband she was going to quit work and write a book. It was a good time to start a new career, because how much trouble could one little infant be?

Quite a bit, it seemed. It took ten years, two children and three completed
manuscripts before her first novel, CANDLE IN THE WINDOW, was published.

In the fifteen years since, her novels have been translated into twelve
languages, featured by Doubleday Book Club, recorded on Books on Tape
for the Blind, won Romance Writers of America’s prestigious Golden Heart
and RITA Awards and been called the year’s best by Library Journal.
Christina Dodd herself has been a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword
puzzle (11/18/05, # 13 Down: Romance Novelist named Christina.) Christina
is a regular on the USA Today, Publishers Weekly, and the New York Times
Bestseller Lists. Publishers Weekly praises her style that “showcases Dodd’s
easy, addictive charm and steamy storytelling.”

Christina's releases for 2008 include THIGH HIGH, the third in her
hugely popular Fortune Hunter series, as well as the second and third of her
new paranormal series, INTO THE SHADOW (July) and INTO THE FLAME (August). In February, her classic historical novel, PRICELESS, will be reprinted, repackaged, and on the shelves.

Christina Dodd is married to a man with all his hair and no Corvette, but many Craftsman tools.
