Chrissie grew up in Essex where she spent much of her childhood pretending that she was Indiana Jones and is a highly experienced cushion walker (little known skill of hopping across the floor on cushions in case of lava sharks).
Chrissie has worked as a marketing and events planner, a chalet host, a ski guide and a (pretty rubbish) dry-stone wall builder. She now loves turning the daydreams of her childhood into stories. She is a graduate of the Golden Egg Academy and a member of the SCBWI.
Chrissie enjoys hiking up the fells of the Lake District and skiing down the mountains of the French Alps. She lives in Essex with her husband, two bookworms and two rabbits.
