About me

Thanks to an aunt’s love of genealogy, Christyne discovered both Louisa May Alcott and Harriet Beecher Stowe are members of her extended family tree on her mother’s side. She firmly believes her love of writing has always been her destiny.

She followed in her family’s rich military history and joined the United States Navy where she fell in love with romance novels after someone remembered women were serving aboard seagoing vessels and sent a box full of paperback romances to her ship, the USS VULCAN AR-5.

She started pursuing her own writing in 2002, sold her first ever ‘finished’ manuscript in 2006 and made her first sale to Harlequin Special Edition two years later! She writes contemporary romances full of life, love, a hint of laughter and perhaps a dash of danger too. And there has to be a ‘happily ever after’ or she’s just not satisfied.

She lives in central Massachusetts with her husband, a rescue pup named Miss Lucy and a diva cat they call Miiss Davi. 

  • Yes, that's how you spell her first name, after her mom's good friend in the 8th grade who spelled her name the same way. 

  • Her first completed book, A Single Yellow Rose, was a fan fiction written about the daytime drama, Days of our Lives.

  • While in the US Navy she served onboard two ships, USS Vulcan AR-5, a repair tender ; the first US Navy ship (other than nurses on hospital ships) on which women were deployed starting in 1978, and USS Hunley AS-31, a submarine tender.

  • Yellow roses have special meaning to her. They are the official flower of her non-academic sorority, Beta Sigma Phi, and she put them somewhere in each of her books.

  • She loves to name characters, businesses & towns in her fictional worlds after friends & family (with permission, of course!)

  • A New Englander since the mid-1970's, she is a die-hard sports fans for the New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics.

  • When not writing she loves hunting for vintage finds at estate sales and watching old black and white and movie musicals.

The Taggart triplets. Born minutes apart, but as different as three men can be. They do agree on one thing.


None have time for love.

Their grandpa has a different idea and he's willing to do anything to see his boys settled. Even if that means asking an old friend to cast a spell or two... or three.
