Author Interview with Christine Dillon

By Deena Adams

I’m thrilled to introduce you to Christine Dillon, an indie published author I met through the Avid Readers of Christian Fiction Facebook group.

Christine graciously agreed to be my first ever video interview, and I loved getting to know about her and her writing and I hope you will too.

It was such a pleasure to chat with Christine about books and her writing journey. Don’t you just love her accent?

Please consider subscribing to Christine’s newsletter and purchasing one or more of her books. And if you enjoy her novels, please leave a short review on Amazon, Goodreads, and any other bookish platforms possible.

Since recording this interview, I finished reading Christine’s book, Grace in Strange Disguise. You can find my review here.

Everyone who comments on this post will be entered into a drawing for one of Christine’s novels. Be sure to add your email address to the comment before you post. Contest closes at 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on December 1.

Join the conversation. What do you love most about contemporary Christian Fiction? What aspect of the interview interested you most? Have you ever visited Australia?

Christine never intended to become an author so it was a surprise to her to write poetry, non-fiction and now fiction.

Christine was a physiotherapist but now she writes ‘storyteller’ on any airport forms. She can legitimately claim to be this as she has written a book on storytelling and spends much of her time either telling Bible stories or training others to do so from her base in southern Taiwan.

In her spare time Christine loves all things active – hiking, cycling, swimming, snorkeling. But she also likes reading and genealogical research, as that satisfies her desire to be an historical detective.

You can find Christine online at:

Instead of a wedding, Esther is facing radical surgery and chemotherapy. Where is God when she needs him most? 

Esther is a people pleaser. It’s never been a major problem because she’s just gone with the flow. Her father has always preached, “Follow Jesus and you’ll be blessed.” And up until age twenty-eight, Esther has never had any reason to doubt it.

Will she appease her father? Or will she listen to the words of a stranger who challenges everything she believes?

Grace in Strange Disguise is a soul-stirring contemporary Christian novel. Book 1 in the Grace series.

If you like compelling Christian fiction, relatable characters, and real emotion, then you’ll love Christine Dillon’s inspiring series.

    Great interview! Also loved the Aussie accent. (Do Aussies like American accents like we like theirs? LOL) Impressed that you based your fiction on actual miracles, too. Adds great power and authenticity to fiction, I think!

    • Deena Adams

      Maybe Christine can answer the question about Aussies liking American accents or not. 🙂 Thanks so much for watching and joining the conversation Ronda!

  • Christine Dillon

    I knew someone would comment on the accent! Not much I can do about my international past and present.

    Yes, my goal is that a reader is never pulled out of the story. That happens when the writing is poor, or we get a fact wrong … 4 fiction and 4 non-fiction available.

    What an excellent interview, Deena. Christine’s accent is incredibly charming as she shares some great information about her process of writing. I totally agree with her that as a writer and journalist myself, it is extremely important to make sure your research and details about specific information is correct or the book’s accuracy becomes questionable to the reader. I really enjoyed this interview!

    • Amanda Johnson

      Thank you for sharing this interview. I love listening to other author’s share their experiences and tips. I’m adding Christine’s books to my “want to read” list.

  • Teresa+Moyer

    Great interview!!! I added her books to my wish list on Amazon so they are there when i am ready to buy more books.
