About Christine Meunier:
Christine Meunier considers herself introduced to the wonderful world of horses at the late age of 13 when her parents agreed to lease a horse for her. She started experiencing horses via books from a young age and continues to do so, but recognises that horses cannot be learnt solely from books.
She has been studying horses from age 16, starting with the Certificate II in Horse Studies. In 2015 she finished a Bachelor of Equine Science.
Christine has worked at numerous thoroughbred studs in Australia as well as overseas in Ireland for a breeding season.
She then gained experience in a couple of Melbourne based horse riding schools, instructing at a basic level before heading off overseas again, this time to South Africa to spend hours in the saddle of endurance and trail horses on the Wild Coast.
Particularly passionate about careers in the equine industry, she writes a blog Equus Education. She lives in Victoria, Australia with her husband and two children.
What inspires you to write?
I love words! I love horses and adore reading, so it leads me to create my own characters based on dreams, my experiences and work background with horses.
Tell us about your writing process.
I tend to write as the ideas come! Often different parts of a story will come to be and I’ll write these, then work out how to tie them all together. Other times I will set myself a goal of writing the next page or chapter and persist with this.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I definitely spend a bit of time daydreaming about them and their responses to situations!
What advice would you give other writers?
Be persistent. Keep writing and don’t forget to promote once you’re published!
How did you decide how to publish your books?
My first novel was close to 500 pages and I thought it was too large for someone to publish for me. My mother had self-published and showed me how to pursue this. From here, eBooks have become easy and quick!
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
That more and more people will take the road of self-publishing as they’re not limited here. Unfortunately, that can also mean that poorly edited books will become more common, too!
