Christine Barfknecht has a passion for weaving the darkest bits of the human psyche into page-turning fiction. She has been crafting stories since long before she printed her first word and credits her overactive imagination to a lifelong love of reading, primarily the kind of mysteries that kept her hiding beneath the covers late into the night.

Christine lives in rural Wisconsin with her husband and children where she is also an entrepreneur in virtual bookkeeping. In addition to reading and writing, she enjoys gardening, crafts, being with family, and traveling. APPLE OF MY EYE is her debut novel.

Christine Barfknecht is currently not accepting new questions.

The thing is, there is no universal formula for any phase of the writing or publishing process. It would sure make an aspiring writer's life easier, but it doesn't work that way. This is not to say that you seek out advice. Ask specific questions when a topic is on your mind (or seek out answers online or in books) from multiple sources. You will get many different answers that may seem mind boggling, but the point is to introduce yourself to options. Then, pick through that advice and try something that may work for you. If it doesn't, move onto another idea. I've found that my best processes and plans for finished work have been initially inspired by advice, but then revamped to fit me. Don't be afraid to go rogue! Seek out help, but don't let anyone tell you what to do. It's your book and your journey!(less)

I just wrapped up my next book, THROW THE KEY (coming 10/04/18) and am working on writing my third book, THE MAN I KNEW (release date pending). Think mall shooting, a miracle prescription drug for dementia sufferers, a murdered husband who just may not be the good man his wife believes him to be, and of course, his killer who will do whatever it takes to keep his identity hidden.(less)

3.5 Stars

My first Shalani Boland read made me an instant fan and subsequent reads only reinforced that. I love her fast-paced, hold-your-breath style and ability to suck me into her stories quickly and keep hold.
