Christine Andreae is a writer and artist who lives in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia where she and her architect husband hand-built their house and raised their two sons.
Her latest book is a privately printed, illustrated memoir, Searching for a Sister Lost at Sea – a moving exploration of her father’s search for her youngest sister who disappeared in the Pacific in 1979. For a look inside or to buy, please see http://christineandreae.com/searching-sister-lost-sea/
She is also the author of four crime novels, all set in Montana where she and her family spent summer vacations hiking and riding in the backcountry. Her first mystery, Trail of Murder (1992, St. Martin’s Press), was nominated for an Edgar and began the series starring Lee Squires, a professor and poet from Washington, D.C., who moonlights as a camp cook in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Lee’s adventures continue in Grizzly (1994, SMP) and Small Target (l996, SMP). The series will be re-published as e-books in the fall of 2018.
Christine’s stand-alone novel, the critically acclaimed Smoke Eaters (2000, SMP) is set on a Western wildfire. Her redheaded heroine, Mattie McCullugh, is an Incident Commander who combats wildfire, sexism, and a psychopathic killer. The thriller was a finalist for a Willa Award from Women Writing the West and was also named a Thriller of the Year by the Washington Post.
In late March 2016, we opened a new space on Main Street in the Middle of Main building. It is called “Open House: Meet in the Middle” and will serve as a resource to our community. We will offer a wealth of real estate and community information, as well as cutting edge technology to learn more about listings, the buying process, and our local community attractions and resources. This space isn’t just for Beth Waller Real Estate; it is for the entire community. We will open our doors to community groups to educate the public about the causes that are close to their hearts and also offer our space as a meeting venue to anyone in need of a local location. Helping our community grow and serve as a resource to our neighbors is “What Matters” to us.
