Christine Gabriel, a diehard Buckeye fan, grew up in the small farming community of Monroeville, Ohio where she spent much of her time writing imaginative stories. She has spent the last ten years managing a financial institution in Norwalk, Ohio in which she's learned that compassion and love are her greatest gifts to give to others. She has a small tribe of children who have become her biggest fans and most honest critics. She's an avid animal lover and has been known to bring home a stray to cuddle with her while she writes. She's also deathly afraid of earthworms and will cross the street in order to avoid one on the sidewalk. She loves vanilla coffee and can't begin her morning without it, even knowing that doing so has consequential effects that could potentially cause a Zombie Apocalypse.
Christine's most important gift is that her readers are able to escape out of their realities and enjoy a little piece of her imagination. She holds each one of her readers close to her heart and loves them as if they were one her dearest friends. She currently resides in Norwalk, Ohio where she's working on Crimson Moon, Book Two of The Crimson Chronicles series.
Crimson Chronicles Book 1: Crimson Forest
The forest bleeds...
Eighteen-year-old Angelina Adams had every intention of taking that advice. She had no desire to disappear into the trees as so many hunters had done. But when her mother is brutally murdered in their home, and the attacker comes for her, she has no choice but to flee into the blood-red woodland that claimed her father’s life years before...
Crimson Chronicles Book 2: Crimson Moon
Upon the Crimson Moon, you can expect great strife to follow...
After Angelina survives her nightmarish journey into the Crimson Forest and unlocks its mysteries, she returns home with the knowledge that true magic does, in fact, exist. She now lives happily with the love of her life, Nicolai, and with time has found normality finally returning.
However, nightmares foretelling of the Earth’s demise with the rise of a crimson moon begin to plague Angelina. Nicolai insists that the forest is not to blame, but soon Angelina's friend Laurana is abducted by a stranger who disappears into the forest with her. To save her friend and discover what the stranger has to do with her nightmares, Angelina must bring herself to return to the place that has already caused her so much misery.
The weight of saving humanity once again rests upon Angelina’s shoulders, but time is swiftly running out. With her companions by her side, she will once again fight to save the world she loves, no matter the cost.
