Christy Brunke

Ever since winning a Butterball turkey in a short story contest in sixth grade, Christy has dreamed of penning novels, memoirs, and children’s books. But first the Lord led her on other adventures. She earned a degree in English and writing, moved to China to study Mandarin and teach at a university, and then returned to the States where she attended seminary, taught drama and music, and fell in love with a zany youth pastor. After Christy got married, a story grew in her heart, one she felt compelled to share. Now was the time to pursue that long-delayed dream. Three months after her second daughter was born, Christy entered her first book, Snow Out of Season, in the Operation First Novel contest. In January 2015, Jerry Jenkins announced her story was a winner.
