I was once interviewed by Christine when my first book on recovering from depression came out. During our brief time together Christine managed to put me completely at ease. Completely overtaken by nerves, I managed to walk out with the microphone still attached. Her camerawoman intervened and got it back before I walked out the door.

I sat in the waiting room for over an hour before the interview started. There were several others who told me that Christine knows how to conduct an interview professionally. I quickly realized how true this is. She was to the point, accurate, and knowledgeable about the subject matter.
