Christine Ray is a writer, artist and musician and fully embraces her creative ADHD. She also has a day job in research administration at a major university. Christine started writing fiction and poetry as a preteen and was editor of her high school newspaper and yearbook. Writing took a back seat to life for many years until the events going on in the world around her motivated her to start writing essays at the intersection of popular culture, politics, world events and her personal experience. In October of 2016, requests for her essay What Every Woman Knows inspired her to start her blog Brave and Reckless. She hasn’t stopped writing since. Christine is also a member of the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective.
