Christina Soontornvat is the author of the middle grade fantasy novel, THE CHANGELINGS, the story of an 11-year old girl who teams up with a group of shapeshifting children to rescue her sister from the clutches of a cruel witch. She is also the author of the forthcoming picture book, THE RAMBLE SHAMBLE CHILDREN.

Christina grew up in a small Texas town, where she spent most of her formative years behind the counter of her parents' Thai restaurant with her nose in a book. After pursuing a career in mechanical engineering and working in science museums, she decided it was time to get serious and write stories. She still hangs out in Thai restaurants. And she still has her nose in a book most days. She lives with her family in Austin, Texas.
