Christine McKay

Christine McKay grew up on a hobby farm in northeastern Wisconsin. She is the oldest of four children and a graduate of Silver Lake College in Manitowoc, WI with a B.A. in Computer Science (and a minor in English). She’s worked a variety of jobs: farmhand, waitress, booth operator at a local state park, switch board operator for the college, computer trainer, computer programmer/analyst, database administrator, and report writer. Yes—she is a computer geek at heart. Ask her about DOS, UNIX, vi editor, or her first computer, a Commodore 64 with a tape recorder drive.

She met her husband Keith most unromantically. At a holiday party, Christine remarked she’d lowered her standards to the point where she’d take any man that owned a snow plow (she lived alone in a rural area and was snowed in regularly). One of her co-workers happened to be the wife of Keith’s boss, Colin. Colin promptly said, “Hey, Keith has a plow.” And a blind date was arranged.

After getting lost, spilling diesel fuel all over herself, and having a bloody nose, she met her future husband-to-be. Keith had agreed to a cross-country skiing excursion having never been on a set of skis. Not surprisingly, neither was impressed with the other. But Fate works in mysterious ways and they gave each other a second chance. Before she knew it, he’d surpassed the five dates no other man had. They were married the day before Halloween in 1999.

Ms. McKay lives on a rural farm with her husband not far from where she grew up, surrounded by a herd of Boer goats, a llama, a donkey, a mule, and an assortment of dogs, cats, and rabbits. She is a full time writer.

Curse of Cupid, Ms.McKay’s first story, was released in February 2007 by Ellora’s Cave.

The rest of her story is being written right now.
