Christina Hoag was traveling before she was even born. Slated to enter the world in Zambia, she made her grand debut in New Zealand. Three weeks later, she moved to Fiji. She’s been traveling ever since, growing up in seven countries and living in three more as a foreign correspondent. A former reporter for the Miami Herald and Associated Press, she reported from Latin America for Time, Business Week, Financial Times and the New York Times, among other media.
She is the author of two novels Girl on the Brink, named to Suspense Magazine’s Best YA list, and Skin of Tattoos, finalist for the Silver Falchion Award for suspense, and co-authored the nonfiction book Peace in the Hood: Working with Gang Members to End the Violence. She recently won honorable mentions for essay and short story in the International Human Rights Arts Festival Literary Awards.
