Christy LaShea is the author of heartwarming southern romance. As an only child, Christy loved entertaining others. She fell in love with the idea of writing at ten years old when her grandmother let her watch the televised version of Gone with the Wind. Then Christy wanted to rewrite the ending so that Scarlett would have a happily ever after. By seventh grade, she tried writing mysteries. During high school, Christy became interested in acting and set writing aside. Following college, Christy married her high school sweetheart. Married over twenty years, Christy and Billy have two children, Downey and William. Christy returned to writing in early 2000 and joined Romance Writers of America and American Christian Fiction Writers in 2006. In 2009, Christy’s Contemporary Romance won ACFW’s Genesis Contest in Contemporary Romance under the title The Bridge Between. After more years of studying the craft and entering her manuscripts in multiple contests, publishing a book seemed out of reach.
In 2018, at the age of 43, Christy was diagnosed with breast cancer which had spread to her lymph nodes. The diagnosis was a wake-up call, but Christy was determined to succeed. Blessed by the prayers of her family, friends and church, Christy completed chemotherapy, radiation, and a double mastectomy successfully. All the while, she has continued to work full time as a claims adjuster and kept writing during her free time. Christy’s cancer treatment is concluding at the end of 2019 and her doctor’s have confirmed she is cancer free. Christy gives the glory of this diagnosis to her Heavenly Father.
Christy’s first novel, Hope Between Us, is a contemporary romance, released in November 2019 by Forget Me Not Romance, a division of Winged Publications.
Christy enjoys interacting with her readers online where she posts updates on life, featuring her four fur babies: Thomas, a nosey German Shepherd; Josie-Bobo: an adorable English Bulldog; and last but never least, Twitter and Ranger, two very loud Parakeets. Follow Christy online:
