About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!

Coal In Our Stockings

We have been had by one who has it all. We are getting coal, not tax relief, in our stockings. Perhaps that is how Trump is reviving the coal industry….ordering a lump for everyone under a million dollar income. The … Continue reading

Death of Charles Manson – What Can One Say?

Charles Manson, who thought he was the devil, is dead.  However, the devil is not dead.  Just an old man who used his life for evil. We are cautioned to speak only good of the dead, but what is there … Continue reading
