A Perfect Fit is expected to release in 2019 under Pelican Book Group. The spinoff from A Christmas Kind of Perfect explores the painful process of letting go of a toxic relationship in order to fall in love with the man God intended for you and will be one in a collection of Christian fiction stories bound in an anthology.
Presently, Christine is working on A Perfect Ending where love blooms unexpectedly between two very different people after realizing that all experiences in life work together in God's perfect plan for our lives. It is the third and final spinoff from A Christmas Kind of Perfect.
Christine lives on five acres in the country with her husband and golden retriever and is now fortunate to devote most of her time to writing. She always has a work-in-progress, but in her spare time, she enjoys golf, tennis, kayaking and simply being outdoors where she finds the inspiration to write.
Her advice to those wanting to take the leap into writing is to join a writing/critique group, read every genre you have time for, and study the craft to the very best of your ability.
Christine is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers Association and the Romance Writers of America.
Christine Schimpf was born and raised in a small town in southeastern Wisconsin, graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, Magna cum Laude, and is an award winning essayist.
Her debut novel, Nick: The Journey of a Lifetime (2011) is based on the life of her grandfather-in-law. "It's about love, immigration, risk, fear and success all rolled into one powerful story," says Schimpf. Years after its release, the book remains a strong seller in her hometown at a local book store and gift shop.
The Ticket (2015), an inspirational romance set in Belfast, Ireland, during the construction of Titanic, centers on the importance of letting go of a self-centered view on life after falling in love. The book won the recognition of semifinalist in the American Christian Fiction Writers Association's Genesis Contest in the Historical Romance Novella category.
A Christmas Kind of Perfect (2017), an inspirational romance published by Pelican Book Group, brings to light how mistakes can turn into regrets that only the strength of forgiveness can mend in a love thought lost. The story is set in Sister Bay, in Wisconsin's Door County.
