Christiane was honored to be selected for the Alaska Writers Guild’s 2018 Lin Halterman Memorial Grant for use in publishing the first novel in The Infinitus Saga. In August 2019, she received an honorable mention in the Alaska Writers Guild’s Quarterly Writing Contest for Fiction on a small segment of the upcoming novel, Infinitus. That excerpt is available for your reading pleasure as a sneak peek in the back of The Global Fellowship novelette - now available for pre-order on Amazon!
Christiane is no stranger to personal tragedy. Her husband was wrongfully convicted in 2015; launching her into a new journey of criminal justice reform and prison reform activism. Her experiences in this struggle also led to the development of the Where is Uncle? series.
Her first children’s picture book, Why Can’t Uncle Come Home?: A story for children struggling with the wrongful conviction of a loved one., received 5 honorable mentions in the 2018 Purple Dragonfly children’s book awards in the categories: Best Cover Design, Best Illustration, Family Matters, Picture Books 5 & Younger, and Picture Books 6 & Older. She was honored to be selected as a Rasmuson Foundation 2018 Individual Artist Project Award recipient for the publication of the sequel, Timmy and Kate Go To Visit, which helps children with the process of visiting a loved one in prison.
She has more than 15 years of experience in activism, leadership, public speaking, and training both individuals and groups. She’s in her natural element both behind the keyboard and in front of a large audience.
Christiane is a proud member of the Alaska Writer's Guild and serves as VP for the Mat-Su Valley chapter. She’s also an active member of the Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators - Alaska Chapter and the Independent Book Publishers Association.
