Author Spotlight (Christin Webb)

I met this author at the BWABC Literacy Festival (held in Memphis, TN) in September 2013. To me she is an angel. Anyway, this week's author spotlight is my sister and fellow author Christin Webb.

After years of earning degrees, building relationships, developing a career, and adjusting to single-motherhood, writer Christin Webb took a leap of faith to begin following her dreams to become Author Christin Webb.
"Outcomes are merely creations of our own decisions" is the motto that Christin lives by and uses as the basis for her first self-published novel, Enough Time and short fiction blog, 'Is It Real?'. It has been Christin's personal experiences and creative visions that bring her writing to life to ignite growth and inspiration in each story. In recent years, Christin has begun a campaign of encouraging people to intentionally follow their passions through her newest blog, Passion Living Out Loud'. Along with writing, Christin enjoys speaking to organizations on topics from self-growth, overcoming abuse and addictions, to becoming an author.
Christin's nonfiction work has been featured on websites such as 'Diva By Design' and 'For Harriet'. In 2010, Christin published the Memphis 2010 Historical Calendar, which featured 365 days of Memphis history. In 2012, Christin established the Webb Publishing Company that assist authors and small business owners with various publishing needs. More recently, Christin has begun screenwriting and producing short films.
Beyond making differences with words, Christin has always found community and leadership very important and finds giving back an easy task. She has acted in several volunteer capacities with organizations such as the National Civil Rights Museum and the United Way. Christin was formerly an Executive Board Member and Secretary of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. ~ Memphis, TN. Chapter. 
Christin has a BA in Social Work from the University of Memphis and an MBA from Webster University. Christin works in the utility industry and currently lives in Memphis, TN with her daughter, Jasmine. Christin hopes to continue to use her leadership and creative spirit to make positive differences.
