Meet Christina

Christina_Dodd_FavoriteSmReaders become writers, and Christina Dodd has always been a reader. She reads everything, but because she loves humor, she likes romance best.

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.) Her mother was thrilled! 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 2018 , Christina continues her suspense series, Virtue Falls, with THE WOMAN WHO COULDN’T SCREAM, an Amazon Book of the Year, now out in paperback and with reduced ebook prices, and begins a new Virtue Falls spin-off series, Cape CharadeDEAD GIRL RUNNING, the first full-length thriller is out April 24. The first lines are:

I have three confessions:

  1. I’ve got the scar of a gunshot on my forehead.
  2. I don’t remember an entire year of my life.
  3. My name is Kellen Adams … and that’s half a lie.
