All kinds of writing


          Author and Journalist Christy’s 26-year career at The Boston Globe(1965-1991) was launched when she made history as the first American newspaper fashion editor to editorialize, not merely report, what international designers, household names, shot on the runways of New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, London, Athens, Dublin, Madrid.

            Twice nominated for The Pulitzer (1983-1984).

            Syndicators distributed her work world-wide.


    She is the only three-time winner of the coveted J.C.Penney-University of Missouri Medal (1966-68-70).

             After she conquered the world of fashion reporting, she forged and established a trail blazing column, CONVERSATIONS, mentored by the Globe’s then-editor, the late Tom Winship.

              CONVERSATIONS was born of intense one-on-one personal talks written in the voice of celebrities, who spoke, on record, about the unrevealed, the undiscovered, the surprising. For the first time, oral history of famous people became a regular newspaper column.

              The word,  CONVERSATIONS,  also became  a media sensation which replaced the word, interview, in publishing and broadcasting world.

            Cosmopolitan Magazine named Christy one of America’s top five journalists (1978).

               Based on her celebrity experiences, Christy has published four books:


  1. *Disclosures: Ten Famous Men Revealed

  2. *Letters From Legends

  3. *Famous Women Speak Out

  4. *Invasions of Privacy
