Unique to Manhattan, author Christina Bauer will kick off the signing event with a brief author talk about the origins of her work as related to the concepts of the heroine’s journey. A student of Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung, Bauer researched a wide variety of female-centric myths in order to recreate the classic female myth structure for WOLVES AND ROSES. She’ll explore the key differences between male and female mythic energy (which in turn can be expressed by either a man or woman) and how the rediscovery of this phenomenon can help drive storytelling, healing, and change in our current era.
Bluestockings Bookstore, 7:00 to 7:30 PM, including Q&A
Christina Bauer knows how to tell stories about kick-ass heroines. In her best selling Angelbound series, the lead character is a part-demon girl who loves to fight in Purgatory’s Arena and falls in love with a part-angel prince. This young adult best seller has driven more than 500,000 ebook downloads and 9,000 reviews on Goodreads and retailers. Bauer has also told the story of the Women’s March on Washington by leading PR efforts for the Massachusetts Chapter. Her pre-event press release—the only one sent out on a major wire service—resulted in more than 19,000 global impressions and redistribution by over 350 different media entities including the Associated Press.
The author of more than a dozen books, Bauer created the Beholder (epic fantasy) and Dimension Drift (urban fantasy) sagas in addition to her debut Angelbound line of novels. Her upcoming series, Fairy Tales of the Magicorum, marks Bauer’s introduction into high-volume print distribution with IPG.
A native of Buffalo New York, Bauer graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.
