Christine Fadden

In 2009, after graduating from the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College, Christine left part-time adjunct university teaching to become a full-time ghostwriter and editor. Her own fiction and nonfiction has been published and awarded, and she has received fellowships from Artist Trust, Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, Jentel Artists’ Residency, Vermont Studio Center, Brush Creek Arts Foundation, and Djerassi.

Christine has collaborated on—as a ghostwriter or editor—over two-dozen published books. She also helps companies and organizations brand and engage with their audiences and clients via blogs, newsletters, and web copy. Whether helping clients sell a service or bringing a work of fiction or nonfiction to life, listening and storytelling is the heart–and the art–of her collaborative process.

As a resident of the Pacific Northwest, Christine spends much of her free time outdoors, running, hiking, and playing pétanque. Indoors, she reads and plays “taste tester” for the amazing dishes her partner cooks. She has worked and traveled abroad extensively.
