About the Blog

You will find a variety of topics from books, history, and wildlife biology work to my photography because some of my significant photographs have stories to tell.

Some highlights 

Book Reviews: I’m passionate about books and love reading. Currently, I’m a review blogger for Lone Star Literary Blog Tours.

History: I am an accidental historian. I never intended to research or write about history, but I learned from some of the best Texas historians how to do right. I’ve also written a historical true crime book on a Texas double murder. It is in the final editing process.

Nonprofit: One of my greatest passions is nonprofit work. I’ve created ten nonprofits in Texas that have ranged from animal rescues to feeding the hungry to helping cancer patients.

General: I love dogs.

About Me 

I’m Christena, the author of Forgotten Winds. I’m a nonprofit advocate, nonfiction writer, self-taught photographer, and wildlife biologist.

My home is in Texas and I have a wandering heart. I currently share my life with a rescued Czech Shepherd who always has my back, along with a full of smiles Entlebucher named Castiel. Goth music saved my soul. Hiking and traveling are my main passions because they renew me.
