About Christina Schmidt

Welcome to ArmedWithCoffee.com, a blog meant to air the thoughts (random and intended) of a writer dedicated to becoming an author. I will relate my experiences thus far and with stark honesty; the good, the bad, and the ugly. The triumphs, the screw-ups, and the face-palms.

Somewhere a coffee maker just dinged, indicating a fresh brew. Let’s grab a cup.


Christina Schmidt is an author and blogger [www.ArmedWithCoffee.com]. She is currently seeking agent representation for her novel, Ruth Rises. Christina holds a BA in psychology and MA in counseling from St. Edward’s University, Austin, Texas. Christina’s favorite stories involve the use of complex, psychological elements.
