About the Author

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.


“Forget James Bond. Say hello to the real-life Miss Moneypenny, whose life was as replete with spycraft, adventure and daring as any true hero’s. Through Christine Wells’ skillful storytelling, Paddy Bennett, aka Miss Moneypenny, doesn’t just shine – she dazzles like the star she was. Just like you’ll be cheering for the heroine of One Woman’s War, you’ll be cheering Christine Wells for writing this brilliant book.” — Natasha Lester, New York Times bestselling author of The Riviera House

“A pulse-pounding thrill ride of a read, One Woman's War pulls back the curtain on one of the most covert operations of World War II, while also immersing readers in the fascinating foundations of 007-lore. Powerful reading you won't want to put down!" — Stephanie Marie Thornton, USA Today bestselling author of A Most Clever Girl

“A thrilling spy novel with a splash of glamour and plenty of intrigue, Christine Wells has penned an exciting WWII adventure of the real-life Miss Moneypenny and 007 that will keep you turning the pages until you reach the end. I highly recommend this exciting and daring book!” — Eliza Knight, USA Today bestselling author of The Mayfair Bookshop

"Christine Wells has crafted a spy novel worthy of Bond himself, bringing the unbelievable true story of Operation Mincemeat to life through the eyes of two unforgettable, real-life female operatives. A must-read!" — Bryn Turnbull, bestselling author of The Last Grand Duchess

“With a dazzling cast from history, and a wild gamble of a mission, One Woman's War is a testament to the brilliance and daring of women and men in WWII. In true Fleming/Bond form, Wells has crafted a glamorous, engaging novel full intrigue, but one that also humanizes and brings to life many complicated people and terrifying situations. Mix a martini and settle in.” — Erika Robuck, bestselling author of Sisters of Night and Fog

“One Woman’s War takes the reader on a breathtaking voyage to the glamour and edge-of-the-seat danger of London in the Blitz, as two very different women risk everything in a daring ruse that out-Bonds Bond. Christine Wells’ latest is such a great wartime thriller that Ian Fleming himself would be envious!” — Anna Campbell, bestselling author of the A Scandal in Mayfair series

"Double agents, double crosses, double lives - this engrossing spy thriller has it all, and with a feminist perspective to boot! Replete with sparkling dialogue and high drama, the adventures of the real-life Bond and Moneypenny was a delicious treat from start to finish." — Kerri Maher, author of The Paris Bookseller

"Fans of James Bond will definitely want to check out this novel. Readers of Ben MacIntyre’s Operation Mincemeat may also enjoy Wells’s take on this. This title features the usual cast, but due to its telling from the viewpoints of two charismatic women, it offers a fresh women-centric perspective not always found hand in hand with military themes." — Library Journal
