Multi-talented, Jackie Christie, fashion designer and co-author of ‘No Ordinary Love,’ with husband and NBA star Doug Christie, has joined the literary line up for the upcoming Divas of Literature Tour. The Christies’, who starred in BETJ’s reality series, “Committed: The Christies,” released their first book, ‘No Ordinary Love: A True Story of Marriage and Basketball,’ under their independent publishing company, Infinite Love Publishing in June 2007.
Jackie Christie began her career as a fashion model at the age of 13 with a primary focus on runway and print. In pursuit of her dream, Jackie continued to hone her skills as both a model and a fashion designer and went on to open her own clothing boutique in Seattle, Washington. Jackie continued to maximize on her creative talent, resulting in the development of Jackie Christie Incorporated.
She met her future husband, NBA star Doug Christie, in 1992 and they married four years later. The book chronicles the Christies’ relationship and offers a candid view of their journey through the NBA.
