Author Spotlight

Today's author spotlight is on a local author. Christine Lindsay immigrated to Canada from Ireland when she was 4 years old. She has lived all across this country, but now resides within the Greater Vancouver area of British Columbia.

Christine has three children with her husband Dave, two boys and a girl. She is also a grandmother. Adoption has a special place in Christine's heart. Before meeting her husband of over 30 years, Christine had a baby girl that she gave up for adoption. She was blessed with an opportunity to reunite with this child 20 years later. Christine and her family have a good relationship with her birth daughter.

Christine is the author of two books, "Shadowed in Silk" which has won two awards (the Grace Award 2012, and the  ACFW Gold Genesis 2009 for Historical Fiction)  and "Captured by Moonlight". These are the first two books in her series "Twilight of the British Raj". On the cover of "Shadowed in Silk" is the picture of a young woman wearing a sari. This is Christine's birth daughter.  Christine's daughter Lana - the daughter God gave her to keep - graces the cover of her second novel "Captured by Moonlight". If you would like to read the full story behind the covers of these two books, just click on this link Story Behind the Covers. The third book in the series "Veiled at Midnight" is due to be released in February 2014.

Christine is both an author and speaker. To find out more about her, check out her website:
