Driven by a desire to see her students succeed and make their writing goals a reality, CBA publishing Services was born.

Christine grew up in the small town of Monticello, Minnesota and moved to Huntsville, Alabama in 2001. She lives with her two children and four cats.
President of Business Development
John E. Carson has been writing since the age of 14. One of ten children, he went to work at an early age to help his struggling parents. Now, after forty years, he has realized his lifelong dream of becoming a published author.
Beginning in 1999 with his song, Deep of the Night, recorded by singer/entertainer Charlie Roth, John has continued publishing poems and stories. He has reached an ever widening audience and broke into national print in Ideals Books in 2005 with his poem, Painting in Thread, and in 2006 with his first published novel, Ramblin’ Rose and the Internet Newsletter, published by Aspirations Media Inc. In addition to his poems on display at many venues, he has received two 5 star book reviews from Midwest Book Review for his works.
John lives with his wife and co-author, Marlene Rose, who joined forces with him in 1973 and immediately began to encourage his writing. She became his inspiration, and her ideas and expertise proved to be a vital element in creating many of their published works.
Parents to two children, and grandparents to four, John and Marlene moved from Monticello, Minnesota and now live in Huntsville, Alabama with their beloved dog, Mr. Freckles. A member of the American Legion Post 237 Honor Guard, John has been continually published since March of 2016 in the Old Huntsville Magazine and teaches Creative Writing at the Huntsville-Madison County Senior Center.
