Christine Schimpf enjoys writing about small-town romance because she was born and raised in one in southeastern Wisconsin. The oldest of four children, Christine was born in Hartford, Wisconsin. After graduating college as a returning adult, she worked as a writer for nonprofits and a performing arts venue.
Too many moves across the country had her job jumping until she settled into a rewarding stop as an elementary school substitute teacher. That's when her world changed course when her husband asked her to write a book on his grandparent's love story.
Always an avid reader, Christine took to book writing in a blink, eager to learn the craft. Moving from historical to contemporary romance opened more doors to more stories in her imagination. Many of her sweet romances are set in small villages in Door County, Wisconsin, one of her personal favorite destinations.
Christine is a member of several writer's groups and is an award-winning essayist and writing contest semi-finalist. Many of her readers claim they are "right there with the characters" because of the sensory details in her books and situations they can personally relate to.
