Christina Rosalie has been writing under the mentorship of Pam Houston since 2008. Her essays and short stories have won awards and been featured in print and online. Her blog, My Topography: The Shape Of Daily Life (http://mytopography.com) was the Best of Blogs “Best Creative Blog” winner in 2005, with a loyal and expanding audience of between 10,000 and 15,000 hits per day. A Field Guide To Now was successfully funded with more than $10,000 as a project on Kickstarter, and has a supportive following of backers who are awaiting their rewards in the form of chapter sneak peaks and postcards.
