Nice to meet you! I’m Cristina, a copy writer, novelist and all-around cat enthusiast. I began my writing career in journalism, writing for the weekly Queens newspaper Queens Gazette and the tattoo and lifestyle magazine Inked. My first-ever published short story, “Petals to the Sea,” is currently available in The Great Noveling Adventure’s Summer Nights anthology.
When I’m not busy picking up after my felines and bearded dragon, you can usually find me curled up with a good book or my latest video game obsession. My other interests include creative writing, healthy cooking, hiking and fitness. Like many of us, I hope to someday see my books on shelves.
I’m also a co-founder of the writing blog The Sprint Shack, where I and my awesome co-founders Taylor Eaton and Skye Fairwin post writing advice, resources, and other helpful writerly stuff! As the name suggests, the blog and all its content began with a focus on the Twitter-based “word sprinting” community, but we eventually evolved to include a wide variety of fun writing advice and goodies. The blog is currently on hiatus, but there’s lots of great stuff there in the archives!
The Sprint Shack grew out of my love for the Twitter writing community. I love getting to know other writers and avid readers, so feel free to reach out and let’s write, word sprint, or just chat! 🙂
