Christina grew up in Tasmania, Australia, mostly on the beach or at her parents' home with wombats and echidnas digging holes in the yard.
Christina started her publishing career as an illustrator to great Australian writers such as Colin Thiele, Max Fatchen and Christobel Mattingley. In 2007 Christina’s first picture Book, Purinina, A Devil’s Tale (Lothian Hachette) was published.
Christina works from her studio overlooking a lake and a variety of wildlife. She illustrates her own books and great stories for other authors. A number of her books have won awards including Kip (Windy Hollow Books), the story of a noisy rooster living in the city, which won an Honour Book Award in the 2010 CBCA (Children’s Book Council of Australia) Book of the Year Awards.
The Booth houshold is a busy one and Christina lives with her husband and children (including an array of musical instruments and computer games) in Launceston, Tasmania. They have chickens, fish, a cat, a dog and a wild bush garden with fruit trees.
