An expert on teen-life “drama,” Christina is the Author, Composer, Producer and creator of the It’s Your Drama multimedia book series for teen and college girls.
She communicates about pivotal teen topics by comparing the reader’s life to an on-stage Drama where each reader stars as the lead role, scripting her life with every choice she makes. Christina packs into this book series an entertaining fictional storyline with a non-fiction undercurrent, all of which is laced with the down-loadable features of songs, spoken word, poems, web videos and tools. It has been described as a new phenomenon in writing as she brings together these interactive features and the stellar effects of photography, eye-popping page design and artwork, to produce a book series that teen girls are falling in love with and are using to deal with their everyday drama.
Born in the United States, Christina spent her adolescent years in Taiwan as a missionary kid and worked with Ray of Hope (one of Taiwan’s first crisis pregnancy centers, co-founded by her mother). After returning to the U.S. for college, Christina received a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Carson-Newman College and began her career as a Singer/Songwriter and a Public Speaker on dating, relationships, and missions (U.S., South Africa, and Taiwan). While working with Choices and Hope Resource Centers, she embraced the opportunities to study teen culture as she dialogued with teens in the public school system on the topics of sex, dating and relationships.
Christina has a dynamic stage presence and is a featured speaker at teen girls events. Stemming from the storyline of the book series, she has brought to life the IYDtpartAy™, Script It Right Nites™ and Diva Cafe Hours™. At these signatures events, she combines music, poetry, drama, prop-infused IYD dances and much more to entertain and empower her audience to make educated decisions about real-life teen issues. As Christina likes to say: “It’s your Drama. It’s your life. Better be sure you script it right.
A dream began long before the book took its current form, It’s Your Drama (Book 1) is Christina’s first published work and provides a strong beginning for the series to come. Christina lives in Knoxville, TN, with her husband Charlie and their four children. Christina adores outings with her family, music and artwork that ignite dreams, choreography that inspires, cafes, spectacularly staged events, and of course…IYD Divas! Christina’s first love, though, is her Lord and Savior-Jesus Christ.
