Ever since Sally picked up her first softball, she dreamed of playing for Sunny View High. Even more, she dreamed of being a star, of following in the footsteps of her softball idol and hero, Lauren.
All those years of working hard, practicing, and just plain hoping, and finally, finally, Sally’s dreams come true. At least, so she thinks.
But watching her idol walk down the marriage path, alone and friendless, Sally questions those dreams. Wonders if life offers more than just another game. Just another tournament. That perhaps her own life might offer more, as long as she stands up and takes a risk. Even if it means taking the risk alone and friendless. Just like Lauren.

Before turning to fiction, she also wrote a lot of nonfiction articles for publications such as Montana Outdoors, Women in the Outdoors, and Jakes Magazine. In 2009, Inside Kung Fu magazine awarded her with their ‘Writer of the Year’ award.
In addition to her novels, Christen also writes short stories including her Little League series, which draws on her – many – memories of base-hits, at-bats, and yes, strike-outs. Christen’s played on more softball teams than she can count, including Southern Connecticut State University. Her softball days might be over, but she still wears her battle-scars from sliding into home plate and scars that can’t be seen – except as stories.
