Christina is a stay at home mom to two young children in Ames, IA. While she has always loved logic puzzles and word games, she didn't start solving crossword puzzles until 2018. It didn't take long before she was intrigued by the mystery of how crosswords are made. Her first puzzle appeared in the New York Times in 2019, and she has since sold puzzles to the Wall Street Journal, Universal Crossword, The Inkubator, and Simon and Schuster. She has a soft spot for spy-related TV shows, and has watched "Alias" an embarrassing number of times.
