Christine Wells-Leddon was born on a cold and blustery day in January, some two months before her parents anticipated her arrival. Being a precocious child, she continued her reputation of being "perpetually curious & temporally displaced" by embarking on a career of emptying library shelves at every opportunity; in the process earning the nickname "She who walks between worlds" from her delighted teachers and perplexed relatives.
And the trend continues today...
As an adult, Christine continues to indulge in her love of all things literary and historical. In 1999, believing that children can find good role models in both literature and history, she co-authored the Chivalry for Children program to help them do just that. In 2006, wishing to expand her understanding of chivalric Orders of all kinds, she accepted appointment as a forum moderator on the well-regarded Templar History.com discussion forum.
When not teaching, moderating discussion forums, researching elusive ancestors, or performing at Renaissance Faires; Christine can most often be found volunteering for a wide variety of charitable endeavors. "For Chivalry to truly live" she says "it must be more than just an ideal, it must be become a way of life."
Fraternally, Christine is proud to belong to: the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Daughters of Rebekah, the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic, the Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War, the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Order of the First Families of Maryland. In October of 2010, she completed her research was inducted into the Daughters of the American Revolution.
