Author Biography

How Pitcairn writer, and now published wonder woman, Nadine Christian fits writing romance, children's and young adult books into to her busy Pitcairn lifestyle, is no mean feat. Nadine and her Pitcairn born husband have 5 children, the oldest 11 and the youngest just 3 , she bakes her own bread, tends to her family’s orchard, 4 goats, 2 cats and 30 chickens, works as Pitcairn’s Government Treasurer and Museum Curator, manages her home stay guests, weaves traditional baskets and makes jewelry. It’s when she’s not ‘busy’ that she gets to work writing, which has seen her recently nominated in The Shorty Awards, which honors active writers on social media.

Nadine considers herself a late bloomer, “I didn’t start writing until my forties and now I can’t go a day without it.” Having written 3 romances and 3 young adult novels, all set on Pitcairn, Nadine’s American agent is confident her books will be a hit and that she’s more than able to keep them coming. “Remembering Love is my debut romance novel - so the excitement is tremendous. But, I’ve got a really special Pitcairn story with my agent at the moment and I’m already 7000 words into its sequel. Once a story has revealed itself and I’ve captured it on the page, I’m always ready for the next.”

But as soon as her foster parents died, Holly found an old treasure in the attic, a treasure bearing her name and her real identity. The true nature of her departure from her native land and the reason behind it is revealed and suddenly, Holly has this incorrigible urge to find out the truth. Now she must take the journey to find that lost love of her parents but little did she know that she will find more than just parental love; she will find her soul mate that has been waiting for her for more than twenty years….

Nadine Christian created a great suspense in “Remembering Love.” Even though the title of the novel was a little confusing as the story progressed the title fitted perfectly with the story line and the plot of the novel. The sheer beauty of the Pitcairn Island is described with true love and passion. Perhaps Nadine Christian’s personal love and passion make this novel a joy to read. The romance blooms in between the mystery and a taboo that is raging in the lives of the protagonists. And their love and friendship is a delight to read.
