Christina Lourens has always been passionate about writing, but life got in the way of her writing career. She's never given up and can be found writing in the evenings and on weekends, often accompanied by her pug. When she's not writing, Christina keeps busy at the day job (until her writing career takes off) or snuggles up on the couch with a book. She loves crocheting, but because of her busy life, crocheting projects tend to take a long time to be finished. Christina has lived in three countries, but is currently living in the UK with her husband of 20 years, their two children, pug, canary and pheasant. The Calm I Seek is her first novel.
