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 more than one million 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, I wasn’t in your face. I am merging Freesia Lane into Christine Merser, bringing it all here under one roof.
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 so it goes, this short bio on a person who loves writing - loves the solitude of it, the marking of her personal time on paper, and the fact that many of you following me seem to find a mirror into your own self in some of what I write.
