"Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe" ~ Neil Gaiman (A Game of You)


Author Christine Thackeray

Christine Thackeray has created a fun new series called the Visiting Teacher Adventures. Her first book in the series, "Crayon Messages: A Visiting Teacher Adventure," is about a woman who is given the worst visiting teaching route ever and how it becomes a great blessing. You can purchase her book from the publisher, Cedar Fort, and it is also available in LDS bookstores.

After reading her first book, you'll be ready for her newest Visiting Teacher Adventure, due this summer. "Lipstick Wars" is the story of a young mother with an escaping toddler. Her son's escapades take her to the door of a reclusive artist. Together, these women make miracles happen.

Another exciting project for Christine is coming Mother's Day 2010. Look for a gift book entitled "Could You Be An Angel Today?" It's a fun story about a typical Mom who has an angel come to her asking for a day off. The woman agrees to take on the angel's responsibilities for one day. Through that experience, she realizes that anyone can be an angel -- even her!

Christine has also co-authored a book, "C. S. Lewis: Latter Day Truths in Narnia," with her sister Dr. Marianna Richardson.
