Christin Brecher was born and raised in New York City, where her family and many childhood friends still reside. As such, she feels she is as much of a small-town girl as any.

You’re never bored. Everything becomes a potential story. My kids think I’m crazy because I’ll see someone on the sidewalk while we’re waiting for a red light to change, and I’ll invent an entire backstory for them.

“the island’s one-of-a-kind annual sailing competition, called FIGAWI, which stands for “Where the #%$! are we?” (Correct pronunciation: where the fug ah we?) The race started decades ago as a dare between two friends, who at one point got lost en route to the island, hence the name.”
