My darling sister offered to guest post!
The Rolling Writer’s sister here! My name is Cindy and I am 10 years Christina’s junior. I do not possess the writing prowess of my sister but she is my claim to fame! 🙂 I’ve had the pleasure of beta reading most of her books and trust me there has been some weeping and gnashing of teeth through each one!
Anyway, I’m not here to brag about my beta reading skills or Christina’s ability to write, for that matter, because you already know about it! I’m here to share a little bit about us. Since there is quite an age gap I didn’t really get to know her well until she opened her home to me some years ago when I attended college nearby. At the time she was a banker and she did it well. In fact everything she has done thus far, she has done well. It’s one of the things I love about Christina, she loves a good challenge and likes to prove that she can do it better than anyone else!
These last few years have been a joy to witness her doing what she loves. I have been amazed at her abilities and laser type focus to be able to create an incredible and intriguing world. Unlike her I am not well versed in European history so once I finish reading one of her books I love talking to her to find out what was fact verses fiction. Sometimes the facts make me cry, (it’s a family trait that we both do rather well!) However, I love hearing how she has incorporated her own ideas into history. I also have to add I may or may not resemble a certain character in book 1 and 2 who met a devastating end. 🙂 At first I was stunned that she could do such a thing to her own sister ;)and then again I love how she watches personalities around her and brings them to life in her own stories!
Here’s the thing, though. As most of you know the Rolling Writing has stopped rolling and unfortunately, writing. I know that she has described in detail what has happened recently so I’ll spare you the rehashing of recent events. I’m here asking for help. Not because she asked me to, because she hasn’t. I began a Go-fund-me for her and her husband, again not because they asked but because I wanted to help and it makes giving very tangible and easy to give from anywhere in the world. I love seeing her thrive and want to help get her back to doing what she does so well. In the mean time she is doing what it takes to keep going. So I’m asking for help to get her back to her passion. I know that she has included the Go-fund-me page before so that you can follow updates. However, I’m going to ask from the bottom of my heart to please help my sister and her husband through this crazy time. Please consider donating and sharing their story on Facebook. Even small amounts are incredibly helpful. You can click on the link and then on updates to see the latest update and to see that things have turned quite urgent in the last couple of days.
Thank you for this opportunity for me to share and please help this awesome, sister, friend and writer!
