Christina Marsden Gillis lives most of the year in Berkeley, California, where she worked as Associate Director at the Center for the Humanities at the University of California, but having spent every summer of her adult life on an island in Maine, she considers herself an "island writer." She is the author of Writing on Stone: Scenes from a Maine Island Life (2008), and more recently Where Edges Don't Hold (2017), a finalist for the Maine Writers and Publishers Association in best book in Maine-themed non-fiction. Her work has appeared in journals as diverse as House Beautiful, Island Journal, Hotel Amerika, Women's Studies, Raritan, Southwest Review, and Bellevue Literary Review. Pieces appearing in the latter three were listed as "notable essays” in Best American Essays.
