About Christy Esmahan

I write both Science Fiction and contemporary fiction. My fourth novel. The Laptev Virus, won the 2015 Indie Excellence Award. It begins in the Arctic where a company is drilling for oil and finds a virus that has been frozen for 30,000 years. It turns out to be a human pathogen, and the novel follows the life of the researcher as she tries to find a way to stop it.

My first three novels,  Bueno, Sinco, and Brujas,  are a trilogy  (literary fiction, multicultural fiction, travel fiction) set in northern Spain and follow the lives of teachers at a small private school. The headmaster is a foreigner, an American, who has been brought into the school to make some important changes, and he faces a very tough time when he meets this group of uncooperative teachers. Well-developed characters and entertaining scenes make these books a very enjoyable read.
