Christine Amsden has been writing science fiction and fantasy for as long as she can remember. She loves to write and it is her dream that others will be inspired by this love and by her stories. Speculative fiction is fun, magical, and imaginative but great speculative fiction is about real people defining themselves through extraordinary situations. Christine writes primarily about people and it is in this way that she strives to make science fiction and fantasy meaningful for everyone.

Christine currently lives in the Kansas City area with her husband, Austin, who has been her biggest fan and the key to her success. They have two beautiful children.

As a matter of fact, YES, I am continuing the series and Frozen just went live on Amazon today. Which is why I'm here, updating my profile and poking around in areas of my author page I clearly missed before.

I'm so thrilled that you loved the books, and hope you continue. If you ever want to get in touch with me for real, try e-mail: christine.amsden@yahoo.com -- I check that daily (okay, multiple times per day). (less)

I love a good post-apocalypse. I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen one, but I am sure that if I ever did, I would love it! In the meantime, I am hopelessly drawn to this genre.

Jennifer Haskin Hey Christine!

I put up the first six chapters of the trilogy I'm publishing. I have an agent who is waiting to sign papers until book 1 is publisher ready-which it is NOT. It is currently in the hands of my fabulous beta readers. I thought I'd see if the beginning got some response here. Would you take a look? I would value your opinion!

It's YA/16+, sci-fi, fantasy, romance about a girl Samurai and a half metal man who join forces to bring down an evil wizard and set her people free from another dimension when she learns that she is really an enchanted princess. It's complicated. Lol.

If you go to the top of the screen and hit the arrow next to 'Explore,' then click on creative writing, go to the tab that says 'new' and scroll down a little ways till you see a girl with swords. The title is The Key of F. Thanks! I appreciate it!
