Writer & Teacher
Christiana Hale graduated Summa Cum Laude from New Saint Andrews College with an MA in Theology and Letters in 2017. Her graduate research focused on one of her favorite authors, C. S. Lewis, and his love of medieval cosmology and medieval and renaissance literature, particularly as seen through Lewis’s Space Trilogy. She also holds a BA in Liberal Arts and Culture. Over the last two years, she has been completing her MFA in Creative Writing through New Saint Andrews College, continuing to develop as a writer. She has been teaching at Logos School, a classical Christian school in Moscow, Idaho, as a Secondary Latin and English Teacher for the last two years, though she has more than ten years of teaching experience on a wide range of topics. Her academic interests focus on the writings of C. S. Lewis and the literature of the medieval renaissance period through the early modern era. Her book Deeper Heaven: A Reader’s Guide to C. S. Lewis’s Ransom Trilogy, the culmination of years of research, was released in January 2021. She is currently working on the final draft of a middle-grade novel as well as research for another nonfiction project on Lewis’s book Till We Have Faces. Christiana grew up in North Idaho and has lived in Moscow, Idaho, for the last ten years. She lives in a cheery house with her two sisters and enjoys walking downtown, haunting the local coffee shop, hiking with friends, and eating Sunday dinners with the rest of her family.
