Christina was born in southwestern Ontario and grew up in Muskoka, a resort area north of Toronto. She graduated with an Honours B.A. degree in English Literature and Anthropology from the University of Western Ontario and completed her M.A. degree in Creative Writing and English Literature at the University of Windsor, Ontario. She writes adult, young adult, and juvenile fiction and has had her books translated into Slovenian, Portuguese, and Ukrainian. Her published books include “Day of the Dog-tooth Violets” (Broken Jaw Press), “The Roads of Go Home Lake” (BookLand Press), “Where Lives Take Root” (BookLand Press), “Dear Jo” (Lobster Press), and “They Called Me Red” (Lobster Press).

According to the Globe and Mail review, “Kilbourne’s deceptively simple prose employs shifts of memory and point of view, place and time, to build a narrative structure that supports a gentle, sweetly moving climax.”
