Andrew’s Story, has educated and inspired pediatric patients and their families at MD Anderson Cancer Center and pediatric oncology clinics internationally where it is given to families at the point of their child’s diagnosis. Learning of the impact of the literacy crisis, Chris was determined to get books into the hands of children at risk for illiteracy. Chris partnered with the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation who selected Read to Me! - a Moonbeam Award Winner - to feature at their summer literacy camps and distribute to children at risk. Chris’s three subsequent children’s books have all been featured in consecutive years by the Barbara Bush foundation as they continue their fight against illiteracy. Her book, The Same Heart is being praised by peacemakers globally as it introduces diversity and helps build a bridge to unity.
Spring is Coming! is being distributed to victims of Hurricane Harvey and beyond to rebuild personal libraries and bring hope for brighter days ahead. Red Envelopes inspires young readers to also become writers as they discover the joys in giving and receiving mail. It has also been chosen recently to be the featured book at Pop Up Summer Encouragement Camps throughout Houston. Consider the Lilies is an inspirational gift book for adults which transports the reader through a garden of watercolor paintings and uplifting thoughts. The Mercer Arboretum is benefiting from the sales of these books as they restore their gardens.
Born in Colorado, Chris has traveled and lived in numerous places in the US and around the world. Now, a Houston resident, she enjoys being outdoors, travel, reading and spending time with family and friends. She and her husband have two grown sons.
