About Christine Merser
I have always wanted to be a writer. I was a voracious reader when I was younger. Did anyone read The Happy Hollisters? A family of two sets of twins solving mysteries wherever their family travels took them? Anyone? Well, I started writing The Merry Masons when I was in the sixth grade, and it was strange how their travels seemed to parallel those of the Hollister twins.
Now, I’m a grown-up writing about things from my own life experience, and setting forth to see if my musings are of interest to others. So far, so good.
I started Freesia Lane, my personal blog, in 2008. I was shocked by the fact that hundreds of thousands of people read it over the years. It was more or less anonymous, and while you could research me and find out who was behind Freesia Lane, it wasn’t in your face. But as I follow my marketing vocation less and write more, I want to own my words. I want to have my name along side them – for better or for worse.
I have been published all over the Net and in some publications that are actually printed on paper. Yep. One Hers column in the New York Times, (remember those?), and Good Housekeeping, and others. Goal. Oprah Magazine. I know, I know. Really? But it’s true, I would like to be in her magazine. Just once. And, then there’s the best selling book that I haven’t written yet. Any ideas? I have the first and last line for a zillion books; it’s what’s in between that eludes me.
Enough about me. I hope you are moved – one way or another – by my work.
