From her blog:
I'll be hosting a blogfest that will go from August 7th to the 9th. You can post on any one of those three days. (I like it when blogfests give you an option of which day to post on!) For this blogfest, all you need to do is write about your childhood monster. Did you have a beast living under your bed? Or was the scary clown in your closet?

When I was around eight (or seven . . . I'm not precisely sure) my mom read The Hobbit to me. Soon after we started The Lord of the Rings, which I finished on my own because I found I could get through it faster if I read it solo. The character that stuck with me was Gollum. I didn't want to put a limb off the edge of the bed, afraid he would hiss and drag me down to some pitch-black cave and then kill me. I've since gotten over that fear (when I watched the LOTR movies I barely batted an eyelid) but yeah, Gollum creeped me out.
About Christine's book:
Abby White was seven years old when she killed the monster under her bed. Now she slays creatures spawned by the fertile imaginations of children, and the number of these nightmares are on the rise. Neither she nor her guide - a stuffed hippo named Tawa - know why.
When she rescues Demetrius from an iron prison, he pledges his life to protect hers until he can return the favor. She doesn't want the help. And how can she concentrate on her job when the gorgeous wild fae throws himself in front of her during every fight? No matter how tempting, she can't take the time to lose herself to him.
To save the children and all she loves, Abby must be truly Fearless.
