All About Christina Brooke

Christina Brooke is a former lawyer who staged a brilliant escape from the corporate world and landed squarely in Regency England.

She was the first Australian to win the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart Award for her first published novel and was nominated for a RITA award for her second historical romance, writing as Christine Wells. Her books have also been nominated for RT’s Reviewer’s Choice Award, Bookseller’s Best and the Australian Romantic Book of the Year Award.

Christina makes her home in sunny Queensland, Australia with her husband, two small boys and one enormous girl dog called Monty. Monty is the inspiration for Ophelia, the Great Dane in the Ministry of Marriage series. However, the resemblance of any human characters to real life people is purely accidental. Christina loves to travel, particularly to England for research and most especially to see her dear friends and colleagues in the United States. She also loves walking, window shopping for antiques and enjoying good food, good wine and good times with her friends and family.

Where in Fiction Would You Live?

It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I love English stately homes. If I ever won the lottery (which is hard as I never enter it in the first place) I will buy one of these for myself and employ a team of experts and craftspeople to restore it. However, I do have the next best thing, and that’s plenty of novels featuring houses like this. For three hundred pages, I can imagine myself in the shoes of a Georgette Heyer heroine, decking out her magnificent ballroom in preparation for a soiree. The wonderful thing about writing fiction

Guilty Pleasures

To all our American friends who celebrate it, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! I must apologise that this post is not in the spirit of thankfulness. I come from Australia, where we’re not grateful for anything No, that’s not true, but I do think it’s a lovely tradition to take a day to think about what you’re grateful for. And the huge yummy feast doesn’t hurt, either! So, for those of us who are not gathering with loved ones over turkey and stuffing, today I’m talking once more about guilty pleasures. Much as I try to live up to my highly sophisticated sobriquet in the
