AUTHOR OF IN A DARK LAND, THE CHANGELINGS, AND DIARY OF AN ICE PRINCESS
Bio: Christina Soontornvat spent her childhood behind the counter of her parents’ Thai restaurant in Weatherford, Texas with her nose stuck in a book. She has always loved to read and tell stories, but for most of her life she never dreamed she would be a children’s book author. She love science and went to college to be an engineer (her bachelor’s degree), and then went back to be a science museum educator (her master’s degree). She started writing fiction when she was expecting her first baby and found that she had all sorts of stories she wanted to tell. Christina lives in Austin with her husband and two daughters. She still heads back to her Thai restaurant whenever she gets the chance. And of course, she still usually has her nose stuck in a book!
