A woman wants things like world peace, a clean house, and a deep and meaningful relationship based on mutual understanding and love. A man wants things like a Craftsman router with attachments, undisputed control of the TV remote, and a red Corvette which will miraculously make his bald spot disappear. So when Christina’s first daughter was born, she told her husband she was going to quit work and write a book. It was a good time to start a new career, because how much trouble could one little infant be?
Ha! It took ten years, two children and three completed manuscripts before her first novel, CANDLE IN THE WINDOW, was published. In the twenty-six years since, her novels have been translated into 25 languages, won Romance Writers of America’s prestigious Golden Heart and RITA Awards and been called the year’s best by Library Journal and Booklist. Christina Dodd herself has been a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle (11/18/05, # 13 Down: Romance Novelist named Christina.) With more than 15 million of her books in print, Booklist praises her, “brilliantly etched characters, polished writing, and unexpected flashes of sharp humor that are pure Dodd.”
In 2017, Christina continued her suspense series, Virtue Falls, with the heartbreaking, funny, terrifying novel, BECAUSE I’M WATCHING, now in paperback and the #1 Romance on Amazon and with starred reviews from Booklist, Library Journal, and Kirkus. Order BECAUSE I’M WATCHING from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Katy Books, IndieBound, Books-A-Million or in eBook from Kindle, Nook, iBooks and Kobo.
