Christy is classic film fan, a playwright, an enthusiastic traveler, a history lover, a pianist, a linguist, a college instructor, an inspirer, and a professional writer, but not all at once. She has raised more than $25,000 in scholarship funds for financially strapped but academically worthy secondary students from many diverse backgrounds, and loves to help grow new writers through her higher education courses. Christy would like you to think about what you can do for the future of the next generation. Children are our future.
Christy has a Master’s Degree in English Literature and Composition from Stephen F. Austin State University, has developed curriculum for secondary and higher ed courses in several disciplines.
She is proud to be a native Houstonian, a survivor of Hurricane Carla, Hurricane Ike and Hurricane Harvey.
