Cristina Hodgson, mother of two, born in Wimbledon, London, currently lives in southern Spain. Cristina had a long career in sport reaching national and international level and still actively participates in Triathlon races and enjoys outdoor activities. In her spare time she also enjoys reading and writing. She won a sports scholarship to Boston College. After a period in Boston, she returned to the U.K and graduated from Loughborough University with a degree in PE and Sports Science.

A little of Chantelle Rose is her debut novel. Amazingly, it has nothing to do with running!

    When did you leave Wimbledon and where did you go to school?
    Hope you like Spain.
    Are you full time author now?
    I am interested in all authors with connections with Wimbledon.
    Have you written for children or only adults?
    Look forward to hearing

      Hi Michael! I went to the Ursuline High school, way back in the 90s. Spain’s great, but I do miss the UK, especially Wimbledon! Are you from Wimbledon too? I’d love to hear more about your project. My e-mail is:

          Wimbledon will always be home to me. Please feel free to send me an e-mail with your writer’s list, I’d love to be part of it. All my work is under my name Cristina Hodgson. My debut novel “A little of Chantelle Rose” is set between London and L.A., and my short story “Simply Anna” is set in Kingston upon Thames. There is a mention of Wimbledon in my WIP though! ; )
