About Me


Christine Elizabeth Robinson  Christine retired as a nurse practitioner in 2013 and became a writer, copyeditor, co-author and blogger. She co-authored books for many years, until May 2022 when she published her own book, Three Years of Her Life.  It’s historical fiction, a mix of history, imagination music and romance. Much of her famous grandfather’s life was made up, apart from write-ups in the Boston Tribune and New York Times. He was a well-known orchestral solo trumpeter in the U.S. His birth secret in Germany, once uncovered, brought out family bigotry, which his determined granddaughter tried to stand up too. The secondary story of a doctor and a nurse’s love, trust and commitment balances the historical details.

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 their doggies, Maddie and Max.

Fun Facts

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.

      Adrienne, thanks so much for your comment. Actually, I am getting old as dirt (in my early 80s). Lucky though, good health has been with me for years. I tried to make a comment on your last Adoption post, but reply was no where to be seen.Can you check that? It and other parts that you have written are heart-wrenching and heart-warming at the same time. 📚 Christine

    I came to apologize about not getting back to you about your book, after you offered to send me a PDF….or whatever.
    It was an oversight. I saw its review on Diana’s blog today. I left my confession there! LOL!!! 🙃😳😖
    I do apologize! – Resa

      Thank you. However, no apologies needed, Resa. There was a lot of music in the story and the main character became a star guitarist. That was what interested you at the time. I know life gets busy. I appreciate you making a comment here and on Diana’s blog post. There’s a book sequel in progress. The main character, Elizabeth goes to Woodstock in 1969, sees Janis Joplin and has a long chat with a new friend, James Gurley, lead guitar in the Big Brother Band that Janis was in. She’s there with her new band. James is the same age as Elizabeth. Actually he was a friend in my life, but in the 1990s. I just transported him back to 1969. And he was at Woodstock. So much fun writing those scenes. 📚🎶 Christine
