Christine Hillingdon

Christine Hillingdon was born in England and migrated with her family to Adelaide, South Australia in 1963. She has been writing since her school days and has had many short stories and poems published in a variety of literary magazines on and off line. She has won a few competitions along the way, including Poems for Passengers. This was a joint initiative between TransAdelaide and the Department for the Arts and Cultural Development in 1994. In 2011, she published a book through Peacock Publications about her 27 years of experience as a Psychiatric Nurse at Hillcrest Hospital in Gilles Plains, South Australia. Her first novel (as yet untitled) will be published through Driven Press later this year. When not writing, she can usually be found travelling overseas with her husband, cooking while listening to music, reading, or shimmie & shaking at belly dancing classes.
