Here is my interview with Christy Birmingham

Christy Birmingham:

It was wonderful to be interviewed by Fiona on her site Authors Interviews! Here is a share of the Q&A :)

Name Christy Birmingham
Where are you from
Victoria, BC, Canada
A little about yourself `i.e., your education Family life etc.
I am a freelance writer who enjoys words so much! I am a mid-30s gal who likes the freedom of being self-employed. That being said, I am always looking for ways to grow and help others, with a passion in particular for helping women.
I am very close to my parents and have a few good friends. The great part about writing online is that I have met people from around the world and have made some great friendships.
When I’m not writing, I like to go for walks, explore nature and listen to music. I try to get some TV watching in there too! Did I mention that I love chocolate?

Fiona: Tell us your latest news?
The latest news is that I recently launched a website called When…

Flight Path: A Collaboration between Jolie Buchanan and Christy Birmingham


Collaboration of mixed media

Bring on the collaborations! Photo: ©2014 Poetic Parfait.

Bring on the latest collaboration between Jolie Buchanan and Christy Birmingham! I am so pleased with this mixed-media project as it is uplifting for both Jolie’s artwork and my poem.

We started this project a few months ago and are happy to reveal the result today. It all began with artist Jolie. She cleverly used homemade paper (made from recycled white office paper), a carved linoleum block of a stenciled bird, a hand printer press onto watercolor, Photoshop and …. Wowowowow, and she crafted the resulting image below! Obviously the process was a lot more complex than I explained here but if you’re curious about it be sure to ask Jolie. Her contact details are at the end of the post.

After I had received her image by email, I was happy to use it as inspiration for a poem.

Writing Process Blog Tour with Christy Birmingham

Ohhh the Writing Process Blog Tour is making the rounds and its next stop is with me! How cool is that? I get to write about writing – well, I do type a lot in a day, so I guess I know a bit, hehe!


Writing Process Blog Tour

Thank-you to Jez Farmer at The Boy Poet for the invite! Be sure to check out the site if you’re not following it already.


Wowa, watch out ((smiles))


The questions are:

What are you currently working on?

I am a freelance writer and poet, which means I have my hands full. I focus on writing online; I have two blogs and contribute articles to many websites. As well, I do a lot of work that you won’t see published with my name on it; I don’t get a byline for that work and therefore it is called “ghostwriting.” Those assignments range from blog posts to product descriptions and are for several companies around the world. In other words, I’m at my computer a lot. But don’t worry as I do spend time with family and friends, and there’s a healthy dose of TV thrown in there too ((smiles)).

My first blog is Poetic Parfait (hey you’re already here!). It is a mix of original poetry, fiction, bookish posts and author interviews. I hope that you take away inspiration from reading the posts here.

My second blog is When Women Inspire. The site is all about highlighting women around the world who are accomplishing positive things. Sometimes I discuss women’s issues but I always try to focus on the inspiration.

How does your work differ from others of its genre?
