Christine Goff
Christine Goff is the author of the bestselling "Birdwatcher's Mystery" series from Berkley Publishing Group.  Set in fictitious Elk Park, Colorado, her novels focus on the environment through wildlife-related issues.  Two of her novels have been named finalists for the prestigious Willa Literary Award for Best Original Paperback Fiction.

Goff began her career writing non-fiction, penning columns for several local newspapers in Summit County, Colorado, as well as articles for regional and national publication.  Later, she edited rock and ice-climbing guides for Chockstone Press, worked in graphic production for “Living the Good News,” a division of The Morehouse Publishing Group, and taught writing workshops at the Colorado Free University and the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs.  A long-standing board member of several local and national writing organizations, Christine was recently named Rocky Mountain Fiction Writer’s 2002 Writer of the Year.

A life-long resident of Colorado, Christine is able to identify over 200 Colorado bird species.  Now an avid field-birding enthusiast, Christine still considers herself a "backyard birdwatcher."  She lives in Colorado with her husband, three children, three dogs, and assorted wildlife—her inspiration for murder.
