Official Website of the Award-Winning Author and Illustrator



My name is Christina Van Starkenburg

When I am not writing and illustrating books, I spend my time raising three tiny dragons. It is a challenging endeavor to keep the fire-breathing beasts and paper separated, (and more than one story has been singed in the process) but I keep trying because I love sharing the magic of my fictional worlds with you.


As a dragon trainer, it is important for me to spend a lot of time outside. So, when I'm not writing or painting, you can usually find me, my husband, and our young brood exploring the ocean and old growth forests on Vancouver Island .
