Penelope Christian is a freelance writer and poet with a knack for fiction literature. This up-and-coming novelist resides in Dallas, Texas, where she is set to publish her debut novel, Coffee and Cream. With degrees in Marketing and English from University of Maryland, Christian takes an entrepreneurial approach to her craft. Christian has over 18 years of writing experience and a special interest in short stories and novels (she penned her first novel at only 16 years old). Christian often credits nature, random happenings at the airport, and her mutually quirky friends as creative muses. As an active member of two national organizations — Books & Writers and Authors & Writing Professionals — Christian offers peer-to-peer advice and critique to fellow writers. Streetz Magazine has published several of Christian’s intimate interviews with contemporary artists, shedding light on the meaning of their music and the story of their success. When Christian finds time to close her laptop, she enjoys working out, cooking, and playing in her natural hair.
