About Christianne Klein | The Herb Cookbook

About the Author

Kleincookbook21 225x300 About the AuthorChristianne Klein is an Edward R. Murrow award-winning journalist, author, television host and former national anchor and correspondent for ABC News.   She’s hosted Good Morning America Now, Eat and Greet, and frequently anchored ABC’s overnight and early morning news programs World News Now and America This Morning.

Christianne began her own journey into health and healing when she was injured in an on-the-job accident.  A butane tanker truck caught fire 75 feet away from her while she was reporting from the scene of a crash, severely burning her lungs, and requiring her to be placed on oxygen to breathe.   Frustrated by the limits of conventional medicine and desperate to recover, Christianne met with holistic practitioners that helped her quickly learn about herbal remedies
and healthy food options.  Within a month, she started to recover, and today, she is healthy and able to breathe again.  As a journalist, Christianne wanted to find out why these holistic remedies helped her- leading to an interest in healthy living and the mind-body-spirit connection.

Christianne joined ABC News from WJLA, the ABC affiliate in Washington, D.C. She was part of the reporting team that won an Edward R. Murrow Award in 2006.

In addition to her broadcasting experience, Christianne served as a frequent panelist and political contributor on the late-night talk show, Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher.  She also appeared as Linda Garvey in the 2006 Universal Pictures film, American Dreamz.

In 2008, Christianne cooked alongside Emeril Lagasse on an episode of the Planet Green Network show, Emeril Green. Christianne has been cooking since she was a child, and has appeared on numerous morning shows and national programs cooking her favorite healthy recipes.  Known for growing her own fresh herbs, Christianne recently completed her first fresh herb based cookbook, Christianne’s Herbal Kitchen:  Fresh Herb Recipes for Body and Soul (available November 2011).  A follow-up beauty based cookbook featuring Christianne’s recipes for health, inner and outer beauty will follow in 2012.

A graduate of Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts with a degree in Political Science, Christianne is a lifetime member of Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society.  Christianne is also the founder of Truth Fairy TV (TruthFairyTV.com), a multi-media company devoted to health, beauty and inspiration.
