CHRISTINA MITCHELL writes contemporary romances about damaged people who need (and deserve) happy endings. She is on the board of Capital City Writers and is a member of Romance Writers of America and Mid-Michigan Romance Writers of America.

When she’s not writing, Christina drinks moscato from novelty mugs and spends her days listening to musicals, obsessing over Batman, and riffing on b-movies about genetically-modified sharks. She lives in Michigan with her hilarious husband, who almost never complains about the fuck-ton of glitter makeup she leaves lying around.

You can follow pictures of her ridiculous mug collection on Instagram, and you can hang out in her reader group. Her debut novel, How to Stay, is available at e-book retailers now.
