Christine Whelan is who she is, and has decided that is enough. She feels deeply, laughs loudly, cries often and generally dives in with both feet. An introvert who loves people, she is fascinated by all the quirks of human nature that make us who we are. A word nerd with a deep love of language, she holds a BA in Linguistics. She lives in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada where she is blessed to be loved on an ongoing basis by an extraordinary teenage daughter and scruffy black terrier mutt.
