Meet the Author

Christine Wilkinson was born and raised in the Spring Green, Wisconsin, area. An avid reader from an early age, it soon became a dream to write a book of her own. After being laid off and unable to find employment, she realized there was no better time for her to see her dream become a reality. In September 2013, she made her author debut with the novel Desperate. When she isn't busy writing, she can most likely be found hanging out with her mom and two daughters, enjoying coffee while watching the birds outside, or curled up on her chaise with her dog and a good book. Her other dream in life is to hire a personal chef so she doesn't have to eat her own cooking anymore - or force anyone else to.

    This story drew me in from the very first chapter and I had a hard time putting it down. Eris has been severely physically and mentally abused by her sadistic husband for 10 years. He made everyone think she was psychotic, self abusive and ultimately killed her own father. When she finally escaped, she found someone to help her hide from her husband who was on the hunt to find her and make her pay for leaving him. So as not to give away any spoilers, I will simply say the author did a great job of keeping me intrigued as to what would happen next...would her husband find her before she was able to prove her innocence, her abuse and that she did not kill her father? I did not expect the ending at all. I have recommended this book to friends and family. Definitely worth reading!

    I was pulled in right from the start and couldn't put it down! I felt like I was literally on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading. The characters came to life in my mind and I absolutely was shocked at the ending - never saw it coming! Great story, sometimes really graphic, but I loved the book and can't wait to read more from this author.
