By day, Christine DePetrillo teaches fifth grade and inspires young writers. By night, she writes everything: adult romance, young adult romance (writing as Christy Major), science fiction, fantasy, poetry, political thrillers, pieces about nature, educational books—pretty much anything that pops into her head. She can't not write. She’s tried, but The Voices won't let her. They insist that she write their tales.
She lives in Rhode Island and sometimes Vermont with her husband, two cats, and a gigantic, all black German Shepherd she likes to refer to as The Werewolf. He protects her from all the evil forces in the universe, which apparently includes rogue squirrels.
Today, Ms. DePetrillo tells stories meant to make you laugh, maybe make you sweat, and definitely make you believe in the magic of love.
