About

Cristina is a high-end fantasy and speculative fiction writer. Her body of work includes novels, short stories, poetry, and observational reflections.

Life for me is about exploring ideas with people who question the status quo and who also enjoy a good laugh. I am definitely NOT a “crowd” person. If encouraged (or coaxed), I am relaxed about letting my mind go with the flow, where ever the idea might take me.

I was born in Rome and migrated with my family to Australia as a young child. I spent several years living in Sydney before moving to the south coast of New South Wales as a teenager and Canberra as an adult. After celebrating 21 years in Australia’s green cardigan and bubble wrap capital, the call of a more cosmopolitan city led me to a change of scenery.

I have lived in Melbourne since late 2004 and believe it is one of the most inspiring cities in the world. I have long been fascinated by philosophical musings and have been writing fiction in my spare time since I was a tween. I write mostly high-end speculative/fantasy fiction as well as observational short stories as I believe these genres offer the widest scope to explore many a “what if” question.
