Christina Hovland

Christina SmilesWith a degree in journalism, my career spanned from the television newsroom to managing an award-winning public relations firm. These days you’ll find me in the kitchen as the artisan chocolatier and owner at Cherry Street Chocolates. I am currently a member of Romance Writers of America and actively participate in the From the Heart RWA Chapter. My work has been a finalist in both the 2015 Lone Star Writing Competition and the 2016 Pages From the Heart Contest.

I adore writing fun stories about, well… love. Life is serious business, so I believe romance should take a reader on a roller coaster of amusement. (With a whole lot of conflict, more than a dash of wit, and interesting characters we can all relate to.)
