My name is Christine Meram. I am first generation Chaldean-American. The Chaldean's history dates back to Ancient Mesopotamia in Babylon. The Chaldean's once occupied the Ur of Chaldea, a city in Babylon. In the United States, the two cities with the largest Chaldean populations are Detroit, Michigan and San Diego, California.
I was born in Detroit and raised in San Diego. I graduated from the Design Institute of San Diego with a BFA in Interior Design. While studying for my degree, I took an active interset in writing. Many projects required me to create client backgrounds and have a creative story behind them. I eventually found myself writing in my spare time and contributing in the school blog. I quickly saw how Interior Design and writing novels are very similar. Both require endless editing, revisions, understanding your audience, taking criticism well, long hours with little to no sleep, and being driven to succeed.
I am an active member of SCBWI and RWA.
