Christine Wells worked as a corporate lawyer in a city firm before exchanging contracts and prospectuses for a different kind of fiction. In her novels, she draws on a lifelong love of British history and an abiding fascination for the way laws shape and reflect society. Christine is devoted to big dogs, good coffee, beachside holidays and Antiques Roadshow, but above all to her husband and two sons who live with her in Brisbane.
Christine shares the books that have inspired her on her journey to become a writer. Her latest novel is The Wife's Tale. You can buy the book here.
A children’s book that has redefined the word “hero” for me is Cressida Cowell’s How to Train Your Dragon and subsequent books in the series. Hiccup is a small, weedy boy growing up among Vikings in a world where only the strong survive. However, he has courage, loyalty and a kind heart—not to mention a strategic brain. Forced to make tough decisions at every turn, Hiccup possesses wisdom and compassion that ultimately win the day.
