Christine Wells


Christine Wells writes historical fiction featuring strong, fascinating women. From early childhood, she drank in her father’s tales about the real kings and queens behind popular nursery rhymes and she has been a keen student of history ever since. She began her first novel while working as a corporate lawyer, and has gone on to write about periods ranging from Georgian England to post World War II France. Christine is passionate about helping other writers learn the craft and business of writing fiction and enjoys mentoring and teaching workshops whenever her schedule permits. She loves dogs, running, the beach and fossicking for antiques and lives with her family in Brisbane, Australia.

Christine Wells recommends
The Keeper of Hidden Books (2023)
Madeline Martin
"An enthralling, wrenching tale of a young woman's courage and conviction, and of the vital importance of preserving and defending literature and culture against a tyranny bent on destroying them. The Keeper of Hidden Books is essential reading for book lovers everywhere."
The Tiffany Girls (2023)
Shelley Noble
"Rich with finely-wrought detail, The Tiffany Girls is the moving, little-known story of the women who worked as artists making glorious glassworks for Tiffany, their struggles, heartaches, and triumphs. Not to be missed!"
Fifth Avenue Glamour Girl (2023)
Renée Rosen
"Renee Rosen's gift for creating real, fallible and compelling characters we grow to love and cheer for shines in Fifth Avenue Glamor Girl, a story of the grit and determination behind the glamor of beauty icon, Estee Lauder, and of an enduring, flawed friendship between two strong women. Fifth Avenue Glamour Girl is a brilliant, absorbing, and emotional novel you won't want to put down!"
