About MeFrom 2007 to 2010, I suffered accidental Toxic Injury (also called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity or Environmental Illness). But, the forced time in bed has given me time to write. It has been such a blessing to work on my children's books and stories!
I love: God, family & friends, outdoors, gardening, animals, writing, reading, photography, cooking, music, dance, bare feet, long skirts, lavender & yellow, and chocolate.

I’ve been working on a video of the house. Hopefully it will be done in the next two weeks. Just thought I’d give you a sneak peek. 🙂 Christa Upton Black Hills Picture Books Edgemont, SD 57735
There is a “treatment” for chronic illness out there called Brain Retraining. I think it can have some benefits. The biggest benefit I see is reduction of stress. In an illness like Biotoxin Illness (from toxic mold and/or bacteria) or … Continue reading
