Christine Webber originally trained as a singer at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama but had to re-think her career plans when her professor commented: ‘Your voice is ok, but your legs are very much better!’ Musical theatre beckoned. There was some success. But not much. However, eventually, in 1978, she became a news presenter for Anglia TV. At last she had found something she enjoyed that other people thought she was good at. It was such a relief that she stayed for 12 very happy years. Next, she embarked on a freelance TV career but additionally became an agony aunt for various publications including TV Times, Best, BBC Parenting, The Scotsman and Woman. During her ‘problem page’ years, she also trained as a psychotherapist and started a small practice in Harley Street. Over the past thirty years, she has penned 12 non-fiction books but recently she’s abandoned fact for fiction and written three novels in which the vast majority of the characters are 50 and over. ‘This is such a rich and transitional period of life,' she says, 'and we all want to read stories about people of our own age. It’s natural. There used to be so little material for older individuals but I, as well as various other authors of a certain age, am trying to remedy that.’
Christine’s speaking career has spanned interviewing artists such as Sir Bryn Terfel at the Royal Opera House, proposing the motion at a debate at the Oxford Union, chairing medical conferences at The King’s Fund and other venues and a large number of talks for the WI and bookgroups and libraries.
Her passions are music, fitness and health. She is particularly fascinated by the challenge of ageing positively, being 75 herself, and writes a syndicated newspaper column on the subject and makes positive ageing videos which can be found on her website and You Tube channels.
