by Christine Lindsay

Christine Lindsay is the author of multi-award-
winning Christian fiction. Tales of her Irish ancestors who served in the British Cavalry in Colonial India inspired her multi-award-winning series Twilight of the British Raj,  Book 1 Shadowed in Silk, Book 2 Captured by Moonlight, and the explosive finale Veiled at Midnight.

Christine’s Irish wit and her use of setting as a character is evident in her contemporary romance Londonderry Dreaming. Her newest release Sofi’s Bridge also features a dashing Irish hero.

Aside from being a busy writer and speaker, Christine and her husband live on the west coast of Canada. Coming August 2016 is the release of Christine’s non-fiction book Finding Sarah—Finding Me: A Birthmother’s Story.

Welcome, Christine! What fun things can you tell us about yourself?
I’m crazy about cats. My cat Scottie is my chief

editor, and I’m also a tea granny. Being born in Ireland I’m probably addicted to tea. Not that tuity-fruity stuff, but real black tea like a nice Irish Breakfast with a splash of milk in it (English style)

What do you enjoy most about writing?
The people I meet. Since I started writing in 2000 I have made friends all over the world—other authors, readers, bloggers. That’s the best part about writing, making friends. I especially love all the hugs I get at writers’ conferences.

Do you have a dedicated place to write, or a nook or corner of a room, or the kitchen table?
I have an office, but my husband doesn’t like me tucked away in there for hours on my own. So while I keep my stuff in my office, I work on my laptop on the living room sofa. He’ll often sit on the couch, and while I do my thing, he does his, and we have some nice music playing in the background. I like to be cozy when I’m writing, so I pull up the coffee table where I can keep a cup of tea. My cat Scottie is often found at my side as I write. His purring is very relaxing.

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
Follow me on my Amazon Author Page, or my blog, but most of all write a review of my book(s) and share on social media how much you liked my book(s).

Please tell us a little about your novel, Sofi’s Bridge.
Seattle Debutant Sofi Andersson will do everything in

her power to protect her sister who is suffering from shock over their father’s death. Charles, the family busy-body, threatens to lock Trina in a sanatorium—a whitewashed term for an insane asylum—so Sofi will rescue her little sister, even if it means running away to the Cascade Mountains with only the new gardener Neil Macpherson to protect them.

But in a cabin high in the Cascades, Sofi begins to recognize that the handsome immigrant from Ireland harbors secrets of his own. Can she trust this man whose gentle manner brings such peace to her traumatized sister and such tumult to her own emotions? And can Neil, the gardener continue to hide from Sofi that he is really Dr. Neil Galloway, a man wanted for murder by the British police? Only an act of faith and love will bridge the distance that separates lies from truth and safety.
