Christine Elizabeth Robinson
Christine retired as a nurse practitioner in 2013 and became a writer, copyeditor, co-author and blogger. In 2020, she finished writing Sunset Inn, a secret keeper’s tale, a historical fiction mix of history, imagination and romance. The story stretched her writer’s mind. Her famous grandfather’s life was made up, apart from real write-ups in the Boston Tribune and New York Times. He was an orchestral solo trumpeter in the U.S. Uncovering his birth secret in Germany brought out family beliefs and bigotry, causing a ruckus. Balancing the historical detail, the secondary story themes were love, trust and commitment.
The book launch is set for fall 2021. Maybe a screenplay based on the book comes next.
Christine’s has been in California for 30 plus years. She came from the east coast and lived in the northwest. In-between, there were moves to Europe and Asia in the 70s and 80s. She’s still in the SoCal sunshine with Robert and doggies Sammy and Charley.
I’m old as dirt, born in 1939, and aiming for 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.
