Christine Stovell Book and Novel

Christine Stovell - Author


Christine Stovell was born in Epsom, Surrey and now lives in Wales.

Winning a tin of chocolate in a national essay competition at primary school inspired her to become a writer, an ambition she neglected for far too long thinking she had to have a proper job. 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.

Setting off, with her husband, from a sleepy seaside resort on the east coast in a vintage wooden boat to sail halfway round Britain provided the inspiration for her novel ‘Turning the Tide’. 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 is married to the artist, Tom Tomos, and is enormously proud of her two daughters and two stepsons.

If you like Christine Stovell you might also like to read books by Janet Gover, Jules Wake and Henriette Gyland.
