Christina Boonstra has just joined the CMC blogging team…..

Christina Boonstra has always been obsessed with stories, from Fables to Sci-Fi, stories about superheroes, and those about ordinary people. Her childhood was split between the Netherlands and South Africa and perhaps, because of this, stories about other cultures are a particular fascination for her.  

A recent graduate from The University of Liverpool, she wrote her dissertation on storytelling through parables, and the way in which we learn from this type of tale.  She began writing songs at the age of 12 and since then has developed a love for writing short stories, poems and plays.   As well this, she is a photographer and reviewer for the Summer Festival Guide.
