Cristina Istrati is an award winning published author, living in Romania (Bucharest).
She wrote her first book ( a romance novel called Seductive Ambiguity) at age 21 and published it in March, 2009. The book was very well received and in January 2011, Cristina received the Mihai Eminescu International Literature Award.
She has appeared on national televisions- TVR Cultural and BI TV speaking about her book.
Two years later she finished her second book – a historical romance novel set in 19th century, in Austria, called Noble Temptation – and is working on her third romance novel, set in Romania, in 1920.
A children`s writer as well, Cristina is crafting her very first fantasy/adventure series (something in between Harry Potter and The Hobbit) for kids and young adults.
If you`re looking to put a creative (and persuasive) flair into your company`s marketing messages, Cristina is also a talented copywriter and content writer.
At a personal level, Cristina loves simple things that bring joy to her soul. She loves life, people, animals and everything else that God has created on this planet.
“Writing is in my blood. It’s who I am, and what I do. It`s how I can express myself the best. If there`s such a thing called past life, I have no doubt I was a writer then too, simply because I love writing too much and it’s such a familiar thing for me. Fish in the water? Yup, that’s how I feel when I’m holding the pen in my hand.
I`ve always had a creative mind and the best two words to describe me are limitless and adventurous. As such, I wanted to expand my creative horizon (what else can an Aries like me do, right?!) This is how I got around working on my first fantasy series (something in between The Hobbit and Harry Potter) for kids & young adults.
What do I love most about writing? Hm, good question. I love it firstly because it gives me the opportunity to see who I really am, what I’m made of. Secondly, I love it because through it, I can connect with people. As small secret from a writer’s universe: I love writing because through the stories that I am creating I can reach people’s hearts. This is where the real diamond is. I find my inspiration in nature and the wonderful words that it whispers: love, harmony, diversity, creativity, magic. Writing is my biggest passion in life and I do believe that it is the very purpose for which I was born”
