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.

Hello everyone! The 11th of this month has come all too quickly for me. I’m feeling nostalgic, as it’s my last blog with the Romance Bandits today.  At the moment, I’m on a hiatus from writing historical romance, returning to the pen name Christine Wells with a mainstream novel called SEAGROVE. It’s about a present day Australian lawyer who must travel to an English stately home to solve an 18th century mystery (out in early 2016).  I’m often to be found on Facebook and on twitter (@chrstnabrooke and @WellsBooks) so don’t be a stranger!  Well, it’s the end of an era!  As Cassondra and others have expressed so well,
