Author Bio: Christy is an award-winning public relations and marketing practitioner, as well as a wife and mother. She lives and works in Cleveland, Ohio, with her husband, Benjamin, raising their three boys and spreading awareness about celiac disease and the need for a gluten-free environment for individuals diagnosed with celiac disease.

“Beckmin Goes to School” is Christy’s first children’s book, and was inspired by her middle son, Beckmin, who was diagnosed with celiac disease at 18 months, after extensive sickness and a series of hospital visits.  Since then, Christy has worked with Beckmin through the everyday challenges of being a kid with this disease, dealing with his frustrations and his own learning curve as to what celiac disease is, how to explain it, and what it means in his day-to-day life. Beckmin’s stories, written to help children define, understand, and explain celiac disease, are meant to be both empowering and educational for kids and their parents.
