Christina Martine was born on October 22, 1988 in Vancouver, British Columbia. She was an imaginative and creative child, but a quiet one. Instead of telling stories, she would write them. Soon, her writing turned from a hobby into a full blown passion. At thirteen, Christina started to work on her first fantasy novel. It turned out to be rather unpublishable, but that did not stop her from writing. As she grew older she became much more confident and sometimes, in high school, was scolded for talking too much. She began reading The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice and was immediately hooked. Christina read more vampire literature and found a common trend throughout the genre: most vampires were immortal and could be killed by sunlight. There were not very many modern vampire books available with original ideas, so at seventeen, she began writing Cat the Vamp. Intrigued with the idea of “real vampires,” she set out to create a novel that would reach vampire fans all over the world. Her unique vampires--who can walk out in the sun unscathed--with life energy deficiencies and blood addictions are sure to set one’s heart racing.
Currently, Christina resides in Vancouver where she continues to pursue her creative passions. When she isn’t writing, she most likely can be found drawing, daydreaming, or watching movies.
Cat the Vamp was released in December, 2009. Christina is writing a sequel that will continue the story of Cat, Morgan and Cat's best friend Rose as they deal with a very down-to-earth vampire world.
