Ann Christine Tabaka was born in Wilmington Delaware and has lived in Delaware most of her life. She loves nature and surrounds herself with gardens and woods. She is also an avid cook and loves to create her own recipes.
Christine started out as a visual arts major in college, specializing in ink illustrations, stylized watercolor paintings, and fiber art. She became an organic chemist by profession, and then a personal trainer when she retired from chemistry after 31 years in the lab. She wrote her first poem at the age of 14 for a High School Literary Journal. Christine always kept a hand written journal of rhymes and musings. All throughout her life she continued to write about what she knew, and saw, and felt. Once the floodgates were open, the words would not stop.
It wasn’t until the age of 66 that Christine started to share her writing publically. She posted poems on her Facebook page, and so many people started to encourage her to publish her work that she decided to put together her first collection of everything she ever wrote, even the very first poem. It read like a journal of her life story. Christine’s poems have been published in hundreds of journals and anthologies all over the world, and she has won poetry awards from numerous literary publications. In 2017 Ann Christine Tabaka was nominated for the 2017 Pushcart Prize in Poetry. Her greatest joy is just having her words out there in the universe to live on, even after she is no longer here. The printed word is a form of immortality.

I am speechless after reading Christine's poetic talent within the pages of this book. She captures life within an inspirational flow of thought, imagery and cadence unlike any other poetic style I have seen. I no longer wonder about reincarnation as Christine embodies the best of the traditionalists and mystic poets of the past to the present time. A work of poetic artistry this book delivers.
