Christine Gordon Manley has been a freelance editor for fifteen (ish) years, and she currently co-owns a communications and marketing company. She’s worked on over 40 books, including fiction, memoirs, children’s books, educational material, YA, and even cookbooks.
When she’s not helping other authors with their words, Christine likes to put her own words together to tell a story. She primarily writes short stories and children’s books, but she likes to play with pretty much any form of writing. The Secret of Bowring Park is her first published book. Her second, The Fairy Child of Harbour Grace, will be published in 2021.
Christine’s short stories have appeared in various magazines, websites, and journals, with “I’ll Always Make it Back Home” winning Honourable Mention and publication in Canada’s Tales of the Fantastic (2017). She won third place in the Island Literary Awards in 2015 (children’s category) and was a Round Two Finalist for CANSCAIP children’s story national contest in 2016.
Christine was born, and grew up, in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland. She now resides in Canada’s other provincial Island, Prince Edward Island, with her husband, their two daughters, and their yellow Labrador Retriever mix. While she fell in love with the red soil of PEI, the rocky shores of Newfoundland are never far from her mind. She can attribute her love of a good cup of tea, tender moose stew, driving to reach that perfect scenic view, and getting outside on any decent day to her own Newfoundland childhood.
