Welcome to my website. I am Christine Rapoza, artist and author of many books in genres such as mystery, fantasy, sci-fi, erotica and more. I love to write, and it is my wish that as you peruse my site, you’ll enjoy my work as much as I enjoyed creating it.

St-Francis-With-AnimalsPrayer to St. Francis

Good St. Francis, you loved all of God’s creatures.
To you they were your brothers and sisters.
Help us to follow your example
of treating every living thing with kindness.
St. Francis, Patron Saint of animals,
watch over my pets
and keep my companions safe and healthy.

Looking forward I am filled with vision
Looking upwards I am filled with strength
Looking within I discover peace.”
