Christine Johnson grew up in, moved away from, and finally came home to Indianapolis, Indiana.

My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Leap and the net will appear - Zen saying

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. In writing? My characters tend to bite their lips and raise their eyebrows far too often. In life? Probably "Let's see. . ." My toddler can mimic the way I say that way too perfectly.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I'm not terribly flexible. I mean, physically, I'm flexible as all get-out, but in general, I wish I could be less rigid, more go-with-the-flow.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I think there are big kinds of perfect happiness and little kinds. My husband, my kids, seeing the dream of being a published author come to pass - those are the big kind. But I really revel in the littler moments. Like: a rainy, chilly dark fall night. Sweater weather. Cider weather. Fire-in-the-fireplace weather. Got it? Okay. So add to that sleeping kids in a quiet house, five pages of freshly-written stuff saved on the computer and a book I've been dying to read sitting on the arm of my favorite chair, ready to be opened. What ensues in the next hour - reading, sipping the cider, listening to the fire inside and the rain against the windows - that's one of those moments that I live for, when I wouldn't change a thing. When I am perfectly happy just as I am.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. Jane Eyre. If I only had to pick one, it would be her.
