Christine Elizabeth Robinson
Sunny southern California has been home for the past 30 plus years. I lived on the U.S. east coast & northwest, with moves to Europe and Asia. As an older student, I graduated from WSU (Go Cougs) in Pullman, WA, then left for graduate school in San Diego, CA. My sons and their growing families live in the rainy northwest. I’m still in the SoCal sunshine with Robert and our two doggies, Sammy and Charley.
In 2013, I retired as a nurse practitioner and became a writer, copyeditor, co-author, and blogger. In 2020, I finished writing Sunset Inn, secrets come back again, a historical fiction book based on real and made-up events and people. The book launch will be summer or fall 2021. Made up characters are Erik Herrmann and Wilson Lee. Erik’s a Jewish cardiac doctor, the main character Elizabeth’s heartthrob. Wilson is Elizabeth’s guitar teacher, and she has an entanglement with him. Erik’s the biggest help in Elizabeth’s search to uncover her famous grandfather’s secret life in Germany. With the historical theme, the story needed a dream come true, sparked up nurse/doctor romance, and a side love connection to music.
I’m old as dirt, born in 1939, and plan to hit the 100-year mark.
I love whimsy and humor, something I try to interject into blog posts and writing.
I modeled for an Illustrator Photographer as a teenager, and was featured on east coast billboards; Give Life a Lift in West Palm Beach – Tropical Florida’s First Resort. I had jet-black hair and violet eyes, just like Elizabeth Taylor.
I published poetry years ago, and that led me to write fiction.
I attended the same university as my sons, and at the same time. I also knew their girlfriends there (now wives). I was an honorary Frat Mom, and a designated driver.
I lived in Italy, Greece and Japan (5 years in each country). The highlight, traveling and skiing the Matterhorn (Italian Alps), and ski slopes in France, Austria and Switzerland.
I was a tech challenged blogger at the beginning in 2014, and I “learned by fire” how to put the WordPress site together and keep it “blazing” with published posts. I began the WordPress site back in 2010 as an assignment in a yearlong Copyediting Certificate program. It just sat there waiting for me to develop it further.
