Christy Chafe is the author of “I’m Here,” a story that follows one woman’s journey for answers after she receives a midnight text from her dead husband.

As a stay-at-home mom for many years (with a traveling husband) Christy has been dreaming of writing this book for a very long time. Those questions of “what if?” that constantly swirled in the back of her mind come to life on the pages of her debut novel.

She has three children, ages 24, 21, and 17, and has been married for 26 years to her college crush. Christy is currently working on her second novel.

I've been a stay-at-home mom since my first baby was born (gulp, 24 years ago!) and now my youngest is 17. I still put being a mom to my three babes ahead of everything, but I've almost always been able to find time to write. Obviously, writing a novel took longer, but I was willing to wait. (less)
