Christine Crawford is the author of two novels:

  • Through Windows
  • The View From Out Here.

and a contributor to four Anthologies:

  • Tell ’em They’re Dreaming.- Bedtime Ballads & Tall Tales from the Australian Bush

Christine is a Canberra-based writer, having lived in the ACT for decades.

Her novels reflect her interest in people and their stories. The lives of her characters intersect and overlap. She writes about the interactions between generations and the lasting impact the past can have on the present.

Christine’s books show her strong love of visual art, whether she is writing about painting, photography, stained glass or the beauty of the landscape.

A sense of place is important in Christine’s stories, informed by her love of travel. This could be an historic home in the Southern Highlands of NSW, a tiny hotel room in Paris, the wide blue skies of outback Australia, or a wartime dance hall.
