About Christy Cashman

Christy is an American author, actress, and producer who has appeared in more than twenty films, including Kettle of Fish, The Love Guide, American Hustle, Joy, The Descendants, Ted 2, The Women, The Golden Boys, The Forger and many others.

The second youngest of ten children, Christy was named after Catherine Marshall’s novel Christy, and grew up in North Carolina where her love for horses began at a young age. When she’s not writing or working on production projects, Christy is most likely riding cross country through the countryside of New England or Ireland. She has also written two children’s books set in Ireland – ‘The Not-So-Average Monkey of Kilkea Castle’ and ‘Petri’s Next Things’. Christy lives with her husband, Jay; two sons, Jay Michael and Quinn; their three dogs, Ben, Lucy, and Dan; and three horses, Calvin, Butterscotch, and Victor. The family divides their time between Kilkea Castle in Ireland and their homes in Boston and Chatham, Massachusetts.

“Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all.”
