Christine Finlayson’s writing career began at the ripe age of six, when she wrote, illustrated, and “published” a series of construction-paper storybooks, which she tried to sell to kindhearted elderly neighbors. Alas, sales were slow. . . thanks to steep prices and a limited number of elderly neighbors looking for reading material.

After many years as an avid reader, Christine has returned to writing fiction with Tip of a Bone, her debut mystery. It’s set in one of her favorite spots: the windswept Oregon coast.

Before becoming an author, Christine paid her dues as a barista/waitress, grad student, environmental scientist, freelance writer/editor, and science educator, using the outdoors as a classroom.
