Christie Silvers is an award-winning, internationally published independent author who has been writing since early childhood. She was born and raised in north Georgia, where she still resides with her husband and daughters (one at home, one living on her own with a baby on the way, and the eldest in the military).
Though Silvers has written her whole life, she didn't begin professionally until the age of twenty-nine. At that time, Silvers was writing web content articles, cranking out hundreds on numerous topics, with millions of page views. She soon published a short, humorous parenting book (Toddler Logic: 50 Things Your Toddler Wants You to Know - Out of Print), before jumping into her passion. The paranormal!
Silvers was soon finding her footing in the genre and deep into her Alex & Fiona series. In 2010, she launched the first book in her Liz Baker series, Time for Death. Set in the fictional town of Tremmel Crossing, Georgia, this series currently has seven books available, with more in the planning stages.
Now Silvers is working on the eighth book in her award-winning Liz Baker series. This book is scheduled for release in late 2020 or early 2021.
Personally, Silvers welcomed her first grandchild (a boy) in late May 2020 and is thoroughly enjoying spoiling him rotten.
Professionally, Silvers plans to continue producing books and growing her readership in 2020.
Is that your real name, or a pen name?
Christie Silvers is my real name. I was Christie Grant before marrying the love of my life, Tim Silvers, and I've been Christie Silvers since April 9, 1994.
Are you planning to write more books in the Alex & Fiona series?
At this time I don't have any new Alex & Fiona books planned. However, there's no telling what will come to me in the future.
Romance or urban fantasy?
I consider myself a writer of paranormal fiction. However, the Alex & Fiona series leans more toward paranormal romance and the Liz Baker series is urban fantasy.
Will you read/edit my manuscript? Will you help me write a story? I have this great idea, do you want to write it?
The simple answer is no. Between my own writing, my children, husband, numerous pets, extended family and online friends, I simply do not have the time or energy for your projects or story ideas. If you have an idea that you think would make a good story, write it! All stories start out as an idea, it's up to you to build on it.
Will you agree to be on my podcast, do an interview, be a guest blogger, etc.?
Of course! I love doing interviews and guest blogging stints. I never know what questions I'll be asked; it's interesting to see what unique questions people will come up with. Just drop me an e-mail to work out the details.
Can I advertise on your website/blog/newsletter?
Okay, here's where I have a particular set of personal rules. I hate ads all over sites, especially author sites. Over the years, I've come to the conclusion that I will not put ads on my website. I used to have a links page to exchange links and banners, but I've discontinued that, as well.
