Chrissy Wolfe, JD

Chrissy has a BA in Communication and a BA in Political Science from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania. Her communication degree focused primarily on public relations and speech. After graduating from SRU, Chrissy attended Ohio Northern University Pettit College of Law where she earned her Juris Doctor. Chrissy was an attorney in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and as such, has written many briefs and pleadings for her cases. Chrissy clerked for a trial court judge for about three years and wrote opinions for the trials and hearings over which the judge presided during that time. Her legal work had to be flawless–without typographical or grammatical errors. The documents had to flow and tell a story. Chrissy has also proofed numerous briefings, pleadings, and technical documents for other attorneys during her career. Chrissy’s legal education and career also helped hone her research skills. It is not uncommon for her to consult at least five different reference manuals to see if a comma is in the correct place or if a hyphen is necessary for certain compound words.

Since founding Every Free Chance Books in 2011 and EFC Services, LLC in 2012, Chrissy has edited, proofread, and critiqued well over eighty novels, novellas, and short stories, including:
