Christine Grimard is a writer of fiction and creative prose. Her work has been published in magazines and anthologies, most recently in Saving Seeds, an anthology by the New West Writers that bears the name of one of Christine’s contributions to it.
Christine ‘has been writing since she was capable of making marks on paper’. She writes to understand the world, express feelings, chronicle her adventures, and to give flight to an active imagination. She loves the power of words to transport both herself and others.
In addition to writing her own stories, Christine enjoys experiencing others’ writings, and that has led her to get involved in different writers’ groups including New West Writers, Golden Ears Writers, and the Federation of BC Writers. As well, she is the founder of Mission Writers critique group.
A self-confessed 3-Day Novel addict, and a proud graduate of the 2009 Writers’ Studio at SFU, Christine hopes that when she dies, many years from now, it will be ‘with a pen clutched in her gnarled hand and a smile of satisfaction on her lips’.
Meanwhile, she has several novels in revision, and we hope to see one of them published this year.
At the April 24 gathering of Surrey Muse, Christine will present from her unpublished stories. More about the gathering is here:
