I always try to remember the advice I heard long ago — start as far into the story as you can. But once, with DANGER IN A RED DRESS, I started far into the story and kept having to go back and back and it turned out where I had originally started was about 100 pages into the book. I'm currently writing the fourth Virtue Falls suspense and I think I nailed the first chapter. But this is what keeps me enthralled with writing — it's always different and new and I never really know what I'm doing. Maybe someday…(less)

New Book!

Dear Ones,
A writer-friend asked me that horrible question, “What’s your new book about?”

I told her WHAT DOESN'T KILL HER is a thriller. And it’s a comedy. It’s about survival against all odds. And it’s about learning to be a parent. She started to make that humming sound that meant she wanted to tell me I’d lost my mind.

…Okay, she was snoring.


In a panic, I told her WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER is a ma... Read more of this blog post »

Bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz recently listed Virtue Falls by Christina Dodd as one of her favorite romantic suspense novels "A terrific start to a long-running series. This one has everything: a remote small town seething with secrets. An earthquake that reveals long-buried evidence of a grisly crime. A hero who is an FBI agent on probation."

“All I wanted was a man who could love and who loved me, who I could share my secrets with and know his.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“For as long as I could remember, I had always been the girl who had watched her father kill her mother.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“Elizabeth understood as she never had before. Everyone, all of them had lived secure in the belief that the earth was stable, unchanging, eternal.
Now no one could trust the ground beneath their feet.
Yes, the earthquake was the story of destruction, but not just of things. An earthquake destroyed security. It destroyed complacency. It changed the people who lived through it.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“It was like living with a bad action movie, all excitement and motion, and no character development.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“No matter how they fought they had always been like this: balanced between anger and passion, between hurt and glory.
When they first got together, she didn't understand how two people who had so little in common could be so madly, passionately in love.
When they split, she had realized madness and passion could never keep a couple together.”
Christina Dodd
