The Christy Award is Christian fiction’s most prestigious award given annually to ‘honor and promote excellence in Christian fiction.’
Named after Catherine Marshall, author of the book “Christy,” the awards are designed to ” Nurture and encourage creativity and quality in the writing and publishing of fiction written from a Christian worldview. Bring a new awareness of the breadth and depth of fiction choices available, helping to broaden the readership. Provide opportunity to recognize novelists whose work may not have reached bestseller status.”
Awards will be presented July 16, 2012.
Gina’s first novel “Crossing Oceans” won the 2011 Carol Award and was a Christy finalist last year. She is the founder of Inspire a Fire, described as “Daily inspiration to flame the passion within you,” and Novel Rocket a resource for aspiring writers named Writers Digest’s best websites for writers.

She is currently working on book three, which she said might be her best yet.
