About me

Hello and welcome, I’m novelist, feature writer and poet, Christine Stovell.

Setting sail, with her husband, from a sleepy seaside resort in a vintage wooden boat provided Christine Stovell with the inspiration for her ‘Little Spitmarsh’ series of novels, but never cured her seasickness although she continues to sail.

Christine lives on the beautiful west Wales coast where long-distance running helps her plan her plots and inspired her to write her running guide, ‘Running Kind’. Half marathons, she thinks, especially when the going gets tough, are like the writing process; both begin with small steps. 

As well as writing long and short contemporary fiction and poetry, Christine has written features for various magazines and is a regular contributor to The English Home magazine.
