Writing, teaching and making history come alive

Christine Pinto Writes

Welcome to hands-on experiences

with writing and history!


I bring the Oregon Trail to elementary school classrooms, combining history lessons with practice in writing historical fiction.


My Writer Doodle classes allow students to exercise their writing muscles with short, no-pressure, fun activities. I also provide NaNoWriMo support classes to help students to bring their novels to life through the Young Writers Program of National Novel Writing Month.


I'm writing historical fiction and fantasy for children and young adults, and picture books.
