Christine Bush – Author

Christine Bush has been a storyteller all of her life. Always a lover of romance, mystery, and happy endings, it is no surprise that her novels have a lively mix of all three ingredients!!

Christine is a women’s advocate, and believes with all her heart that women can face the problems in their lives with courage, creativity (and often humor) and make a difference in the world. There is an incorrect “stereotype” that romance novels have cookie cutter themes and weak heroines who need to be rescued. Far from that image, Christine’s stories center around strong, dedicated women of today who balance family, career and love with enthusiasm and success. She likes characters who deal with real life challenges, just like her readers. Her characters are committed to following the passions in their lives, both in their relationships and in their careers.

Facing a challenge is a familiar theme for Christine. With a BA in Psychology and Elementary Education from Hope College in Holland, Michigan, an MBA from Temple University, and an MA in Clinical Psychology from LaSalle University. she is a woman with experience in many different venues, and this has brought depth and knowledge to many of her stories.

Her 2011 release, “Cindy’s Prince”, published by Wild Rose Press in both paperback and digital formats has won several awards. This sweet romance is a modern day “Cinderella” story with a twist, set in Philadelphia.  She has also written eight books of mystery and romance with Avalon Books in New York City. A very diverse writer, Christine has also written numerous articles and columns for magazines, newspapers and newsletters. Her varied topics include writing technique, educational themes, creative motivation and family issues.

As a playwright, she has written a series of five one-act plays about women’s issues that have been successfully workshopped and will hopefully be produced locally.

An active member of several writing groups, she has been a speaker and workshop leader for New Jersey Romance Writers, Bucks County Romance Writers, Romance Writers of America, and the International Women’s Writing Guild. Her writing workshops have taken her to Holy Family College, Skidmore College, Princeton University and the New Jersey Women’s Business Alliance.

When she isn’t writing, she can be found teaching Psychology at a local college, or working with clients as a Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice,   helping people to face their issues and challenges, and find their own happy endings in life.

“I’m a believer that good women’s fiction can be a strong inspiration and motivation to readers in their daily lives. Woman have more opportunities today, but we also have more challenges and responsibilities to face. Our books reflect that. The conflicts, issues, and loving relationships in each one are as unique and fascinating as the women who read them.”

Christine believes that women have stories to tell, both through fiction and through real life, and loves to hear from aspiring writers of all kinds, as well as from her beloved readers.
