A longtime miniatures collector, Christine Verstraete enjoys working in miniature whenever she can. Her favorite is one-inch-scale, but she's game to try most any scale (as long as she can see it, of course!) Her miniatures have won awards at local dollhouse shows and county fairs.
When she's not working on minis (when is that?), her other love is writing fiction. Her short stories have been published in various print anthologies, in eBooks and online.
She also is author of a children's book, Searching for a Starry Night, A Miniature Art Mystery, which is partly inspired by her own miniatures collection and centers on the search for a missing miniature replica of Van Gogh's famous painting, "Starry Night." Other book projects are in the works.
