Christine Warren grew up in Texas and Tennessee before attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she studied Creative Writing and graduated with a degree in English. The richly layered cultures of the South and Southwest, both of which she loves and knows intimately, have profoundly shaped her as a storyteller. After working for fourteen years in marketing and consulting, Warren left corporate life in order to focus on her writing full-time. Her first book, Paddlefish, was published in 2011 and recounts her adventure competing in the The Texas Water Safari, a 260-mile river race. Her second book, Honky Tonk Debutante, is part music history and part memoir and was published in 2014.
With her husband and teenage daughter, Christine Warren splits time between Austin, Texas and Mobile, Alabama.
