Christine Stovell

Winning a tin of chocolate in a national essay competition at primary school inspired Christine Stovell to become a writer. 

After graduating from UEA, she took various jobs in the public sector writing research papers and policy notes by day and filling up her spare drawers with embryonic novels by night.  Losing her dad to cancer made her realise that if she was ever going to get a novel published she had to put her writing first.

Christine lives on the beautiful west Wales coast where long-distance running helps her plan her plots.  Half marathons, like novels, both begin with small steps.  She has also sailed halfway round Britain in a vintage wooden boat.

It's a fact

Male readers prefer fantasy romance while female readers prefer historical romances.
