Christine, an educator and reading specialist, advocates for children’s learning through books. She makes Canadian history come alive in her creative non-fiction books, and writes about fascinating Canadians who helped to make a difference in their community and country.
A former educator, she makes connections to the educational curriculum in her writing and levels her writing to specific expectations in language arts and social studies. Especially concerned with the gender gap in reading, she organized a very successful initiative, “Cool Guys Reading Club” among some schools in the Toronto area, eventually adopted by a local public library, that dramatically increased reading among boys at the Grades 3 to 6 level.
She knows that she enjoys the best of both worlds, living for half the year in Toronto and the other half in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.
