Christie Ridgway grew up in California, and began writing romance when she was eleven years old. She developed a crush on the boy on the cover of the latest Tigerbeat magazine and realized that the only way she would ever meet him was in her imagination. She wrote a series of romantic stories in which she was able to date the cute boy. In her freshman year of college, at the annual Halloween Dance, she met her future husband. They married several years later and now have two sons. After graduation, Ridgway spent several years working as a technical writer and a computer programmer. While her sons were young, she rediscovered the joys of reading romance novels, and decided that she wanted to write the same kind of books, ones that provided both "entertainment and emotional satisfaction." Ridgway and her family live in California.
