That other Christine


It’s happened a couple of times now, so I suppose I need to say something.

I realize it’s a kind of unusual name, and the chances that there would be two of us with the same name who are both writers is fairly slim, but the fact is that I am not that other Christine Mehring. She is an accomplished Associate Professor of Art History who writes a great deal of apparently well-received books and articles concerning fascinating artists about whom I have never heard. I am simply a novelist. She lives somewhere around Chicago. I live in rural Nevada. From what I can tell, I suspect that my hair is longer. It is an odd experience to google your name and find it associated with someone else, who probably, quite justifiably, thinks it is their name. Such is life. Anyway, if you have wandered in looking for the other Christine, in the words of Bob Dylan, it ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe. Try the University of Chicago.

    And there is a third one…. just wondered about some requests on Facebook! I am living in Germany, Mehring is an old name there but not very often, some cities are also named like this.
    Cheers from the other side of the world…
