Christina Im

Behind a bookshelf

Reader & Writer


Christina is an aspirant wordsmith and ardent believer in ghosts. (Really, there's not much difference between the former and the latter.) She daydreams about fairy tales, clockwork, and girls with iron hearts. She's a proud Janeite, Sherlockian, and Lord of the Rings fan.

Christina received a National Gold Medal in the 2014 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, and her novel On the Midnight Streets was awarded a National Silver Medal in the 2014 Scholastic PUSH Novel Contest. Her work has appeared in several publications, including Hogglepot, Foxglove Hymnal, and The Plum Collection. She currently resides in a very rainy city indeed, where she disrupts puddles and other norms.

(Watch this space. There will totally be a manuscript here ASAP, as soon as Christina stops procrastinating.)

Favorite Quotes

"But every story I've ever read has some love and some good and some evil. And they all have bravery, and a little selflessness and sacrifice. So if I am to be a heroine, if it means saving the lives of others, then perhaps I can bear what has happened." - Lydia Albano, FINDING YOU
