Christina Boyd wears many hats as she is a great reader, an editor at The Quill Ink, a dedicated reviewer, and a ceramicist. A life member of Jane Austen Society of North America, Christina lives quietly in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest with her dear Mr. B, as her two busy young adults have spread their wings. Visiting Jane Austen's England was made possible by actor Henry Cavill when she won the Omaze experience to meet him in the spring of 2017 on the London Eye. True story. You can Google it. ...more
