Christina McDonald is an author of suspenseful, emotional thrillers. She is also an avid bookworm and a devoted mother and wife. She was born in Seattle, Washington and now lives in London, England with her husband and two sons, where she enjoys reading, writing, hiking and lifting weights at the gym.

Christina always wanted to be a writer. She told her earliest stories to her two younger sisters, who were her first audience, cheerleaders and sounding board. She has a BA in Communications from the University of Washington, Seattle and an MA in Journalism from the National University of Ireland, Galway. Going to college in Ireland wasn’t part of the master plan, but happened randomly when Christina went travelling and arrived at Heathrow Airport in London completely jet lagged, caught sight of the Aer Lingus desk, and spontaneously bought a ticket to Ireland. She loved it so much she went back the following year to study.

Christina has worked as an author, journalist, and copywriter for companies such as The Sunday Times, Dublin, The Connacht Tribune, Galway, Expedia, USA TODAY, Travelex, TUI Travel, Pearson Publishing and British Telecom (BT). Originally from Seattle, WA, she holds an MA in Journalism from the National University of Ireland Galway, and now lives in London, England.

Christina McDonald recommends
Don't Forget Me (2024)
Rea Frey
"Poignant, emotional, and yet marvelously malevolent, Don't Forget Me is written with Frey's traditional gorgeous prose while simultaneously being suffused with dread. The final outcome is deeply shocking and terrifying. Certain to keep readers turning the pages!"
It Takes Monsters (2023)
Mandy McHugh
"A clever and pacey thriller. McHugh delivers a tantalizing story about a dysfunctional marriage and what happens when one decides to take matters into their own hands. Claws out, no holds barred, this one is urgent, sinister, and sharp as a knife."
This is How We End Things (2023)
R J Jacobs
"RJ Jacobs delivers a gripping, pacey and compulsive psychological thriller leading readers on a dark and beguiling journey into what it means to lie and be lied to. Addictive and sharp as a knife, you'll want to clear your schedule!"
