Cristina currently lives in Massachusetts. She earned a degree in Creative Writing from the University of Arizona, and spent many years on the West Coast living and working in Arizona and California. She moved back to New England in 2008, and began a journey that led to refocusing her life on the ‘want tos’ rather than the ‘have tos’, by making what she enjoys doing creatively a priority. In 2013 she participated in her first NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and drafted a story called The Empire that a few years later would become her first completed novel. The Empire is the first in a series and was published January 6, 2017, under the name C.L. Alden. Book two is currently a work in progress. Cristina is part of a weekly writing group, The Metrowest Writers, and Co-creator of Massachusetts Science Fiction & Fantasy Authors. In addition to writing, she also enjoys photography, cooking and various crafting projects.
