Christiane Von Linz, a native of Austria, is a world traveler, musician, and educator. In 1981, a bizarre encounter compelled Christiane and her older sister Elfi to quit everything and embark on a soul-searching quest.
Along the way, in quite a peculiar fashion, they discovered new talents, dubbing themselves the singing duo Evita & Christina. Launching their act in far away India, the bold sisters crisscrossed Asia and Arabia, achieving local fame amid triumph and heartache, finding a deeper understanding of what ultimately connects us all and what really matters in life.
A world citizen and multicultural fan, she has lived in Kenya, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Bahrain, India, Sri Lanka, and Maldives. Furthermore, her extensive travels have taken her to Cyprus, Singapore, Ecuador, Mexico, Canada, Tunisia, Morocco and many countries in Europe. Her writings have appeared in the Long Beach City College Literary Magazine, Verdad and one of her travel essays was shortlisted at the San Francisco Writers Conference Indie Publishing Contest. Christiane currently divides her time between Long Beach, California, Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Austria. Her upcoming memoir tells of the challenges, triumphs, and finding purpose and meaning during an uncharted five-year journey.
