About the Author

Christine Amsden is the author of nine award-winning fantasy and science fiction novels, including the Cassie Scot Series.

Speculative fiction is fun, magical, and imaginative but Christine believes great speculative fiction is about real people defining themselves through extraordinary situations. She writes primarily about people, and it is in this way that she strives to make science fiction and fantasy meaningful for everyone.

In addition to writing, Christine is a freelance editor and political activist. Disability advocacy is of particular interest to her; she has a rare genetic eye condition called Stargardt Macular Degeneration and has been legally blind since the age of eighteen. In her free time, she enjoys role playing, board games, and a good cup of tea. She lives in the Kansas City area with her husband and two kids.

  1. I just read your piece in “How To Write…” and enjoyed your honesty and humor regarding the struggle. Your revealing of the safe havens of Hatrack and Writers Village has given me a place to hang out while I try to find my way back to writing…it’s been pretty scary in here. You’ve tossed me the rope to pull myself out. Glad it didn’t have a noose.


  2. Hello christine. My god you are a inspiration to every human beings. The first thing that I really appreciate in your life story is that all humans can do what they want to do if they have a goal. I had a woman who said that i would not se or be able to get the chance of getting my 30 year birthday. She did not believe that this was possible for me. Today I am a very life loving man at the age of 40. πŸ™‚
    β™₯Life. Thanks to the music band that no longer is a band πŸ™ But the 3 humans in that band is still making great music and beautiful lyrics. Sorry, this is the name of the band ” a-ha “.. I don’t know if you have heard about this band ever? But they were all from the county and city that I am from to:-) And I have been so lucky enough to be able too met them many times. The first song that they went to the top in the usa was Take on me. After that I was just wondering if this is possible then maybe I can do it for myself as well? So after 18 times with my heart that stopped working, but I didn’t died. I am singing and dancing and playing music. Even did become a pro billiard player, and was the best in my country πŸ™‚ so thankful for reading your own personal story, and the rest of your own site is so great to see and hear about. I have always loved science fiction or the same stuff that is so brilliant free of any kind of thing that is not being able to make some sense . Again Christine, now is it you that have been a inspiration to me in my life in general. I will be able too look forward to what god wants me to do with my own life and family members. Best regards and wishes to you and your family. All the best of luck to you and your significant site. Hugs from Oslo / Norway and me.
