Christina McDonald is a qualified author and journalist, a zealous bookworm and a devoted mother and wife.
She was born in Seattle, Washington, the oldest of three girls. These first relationships were the audience, cheerleaders and sounding board for her early creative stories and helped with many ideas for her later writing.
She studied Communications at the University of Washington, then moved to Ireland, where she received a Master’s in Journalism from the National University of Ireland, Galway.
In her professional life, Christina has worked as a copywriter for much-loved brands such as British Telecom (BT), Travelex, Wood Mackenzie, Pearson Publishing, TUI Travel, Expedia and USAToday.com.
