Christy DistlerChristy writes cross-cultural contemporary and historical fiction about faith that overcomes and grace that restores. Her nonfiction writings and poetry have been featured in the The Mennonite, Rod and Staff Publishers' The Christian Pathway, and several literary magazines and anthologies. She is represented by The Steve Laube Agency. In 2015, she co-authored 5 Editors Tackle the 12 Fatal Flaws of Fiction Writing and contributed to Not Alone: A Literary and Spiritual Companion for Those Facing Infertility & Miscarriage. She edits and proofreads for four publishing houses as well as offers freelance editing through Avodah Editorial Services.
Obsession with words aside, she's also a wife and the mom of a nine-year-old girl, a seven-year-old boy, an eighty-pound black lab who thinks she's a lap dog, and an ever-changing number of amphibians (yes, really). She considers dark chocolate a food group (level on the pyramid all depends on the day). She loves to laugh. And she's thankful. When not reading, writing, editing, at acro/gymnastics or swimming practice, or involved with family and church activities, you can find her trolling yard sales and thrift stores. She lives in the same Pennsylvania town where she grew up.
