Christine has several hobbies, many of which she has used as background underpinning some of her web content writing work. These include craft hobbies including knitting, crocheting, and embroidery. She also enjoys reading and cooking. In terms of fiction, she particularly enjoys mystery and romance novels, and has been pleased to find that the quality and variety available in secular romance has improved in the last few years. She's also read widely in Christian romance. Within secular romance, she particularly enjoys the suspenseful sub-genre, such as represented by the Harlequin Intrigue series. Christine also enjoys reading nonfiction, and considers herself very much so a lifelong learner. A past hobby Christine enjoyed was horseback riding, however in recent years she has not had the opportunity to participate in that hobby lately because of conflicts of time and money and the limited availability of places to rent horses in the area she currently lives in.

She estimates that she has completed at least 25 writing assignments in this industry segment.
Christine has familiarity with the government industry through having worked in a number of government private sector subcontracting environments; however, most of her work in that industry was not as a writer or in an editorial capacity so she estimates having completed five paid projects related to writing.
