Christine Fadden is an award-winning full-time writer, ghostwriter, editor, and writing coach. She has worked on over two-dozen books and book proposals, with a focus on group psychology, mindful leadership, women’s issues, and memoir. Literary fiction is her first love.
Whether collaborating with a startup entrepreneur, a famous athlete, a renowned academic, or the storyteller next door, Christine begins each unique book journey by listening thoughtfully to her client and then drawing up a mutually motivating roadmap. Conducting regularly scheduled interviews to keep crucial long-range momentum and creative flow going, she elicits the story behind and beyond the story—often enlarging her clients’ perspective and appreciation for their own mission, purpose, and message in the process.
While her focus is on full-length books, Christine has written web content, articles, instructional/training materials, blog posts, and Tweets for individuals in or connected to the following universities, companies, and organizations:
- The New School
- Portland State University
- Mt. Hood Community College
- Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
- Strategic Coach
- Girl Friday Productions
- The Greenline Market
- Handcrafted Learning
- The National Football League (NFL)
Before turning to writing full-time, Christine worked as a university instructor in the United States and abroad. Since graduating from the prestigious Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers, she has received juried fellowships from Artist Trust, Playa Arts and Science Residency, Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, Jentel Artists’ Residency, Brush Creek Arts Foundation, Vermont Studio Center, and Djerassi. She resides on the Olympic Peninsula, where she enjoys swimming, hiking, playing pétanque, running, and reading.
She is currently working on a series of body and geology-centered essays on aging, beauty, and play. Her novel Outta Here! will soon be out on another round of queries.
