Cristina Alger’s Twitter bio sums her up as “Reader, Writer, Mom” and author of two novels. Her second novel, THIS WAS NOT THE PLAN, is now available in paperback. Author Sarah Pekkanen calls it “A funny, bittersweet, and ultimately uplifting look at parenthood through the eyes of a single father. You won’t just root for these characters—you’ll fall in love with them.” I’m so pleased to have found Cristina and her work, and to introduce her to you today. Meet Cristina.
