Christina Barber's Intro

Hello one and all! I'm very excited to be part of this new blog.

I have several published works - fiction, non-fiction - short stories and novels. I've been actively writing - writing for publication - for three years.

I am a full time writer and full time mom. (Yes, I know. I hold two full time jobs!). Believe me, my husband and daughter keep me busy enough, but I've learned to juggle household chores and still complete novels. It is a learned art - well, okay an art and use of headphones.

I enjoy research and have a passion for mythology. I also enjoy researching the paranormal (aka ghosts). I guess you could consider me a researcher, author and adventurer. I write and read fantasy, sci-fi, and horror or blends there of. All of my works focus on the darker angle within the above mentioned different genres.

I look forward to contributing with this great group of diverse people!
Thanks for reading me.

Drop a line and tell us about you!

Christina, no matter how many times I real about you being a 'ghost hunter' I am always thrilled. What a fascinating area to explore. Has this contributed to your stories at all?


Christina said...

Thanks Lea. Yes, ghost hunting is very different and something I always wanted to do. Now, as an author I have a 'reason'.
My novel, Greystone has several ghosts and I am now writing a non-fiction true ghost book (out in the Fall of 2007). Many of my opportunities came about because of my gusto (or crazy) attitude of 'experience it yourself'.

I'm using a ghost in my manuscript. Where can I find resources?

Hey, greenmellissa -
I found a local Georgia Based group - the Ghost Hounds. They have a great group of experienced folks to ask questions to. They are on the web and also have links to other groups in different states.
Hope this helps!
