Christy Raedeke is a freelance writer, author, and travel addict. She has trekked in the Himalayas, spent Halloween in a 500-year-old Scottish castle, dived into bottomless cenotes in the Yucatan jungle, studied feng shui in Kuala Lumpur, stood atop the Jungfrau in Switzerland, floated down the Ganges, explored Zeus's cave on Crete, climbed Mayan pyramids in Chiapas, melted her shoes on the lava fields of Mauna Loa, and body surfed in the Libyan sea.
Raedeke is the recipient of the Enda L. Holmes Fellowship for Young Reader's Literature awarded by Oregon Literary Arts. She lives in Ashland, Oregon with her husband and two young children.
