Christina Garbutt worked in publishing as a Commissioning Editor for many years. The favourite part of her job was helping authors to develop their writing.
She gave up working full time after the birth of her first child and started to concentrate on her own writing. Her first novella, The Locket of Logan Hall was published by My Weekly Pocket Novels shortly afterwards. She recently published Mystery at Morwenna Bay with the same publisher and Murder at Melveryn Manor is due out soon. Some of her short stories have also been published.
As well as writing she also works as a project manager for various freelance titles and as an indexer.
She lives in South Wales with her husband and their two children.
