About Clare

With a bachelor of arts in Creative Writing with English Literature, and a master of arts in Creative Writing, you could say I’m a bit word-obsessed! No surprise, then, I’m also a writer like you, with seven romantic fantasy books published (and ideas for approximately a million more). 

Once upon a time, I was a college lecturer here in the UK, which gave me years of experience working with adults in seminar, tutorial, and coaching settings. (To get a bit meta, I even taught others how to teach.)

Fantasy is my jam, thanks to reading the DragonLance graphic novels a bit too young, and Tamora Pierce’s Song of the Lioness series at exactly the right age. More recent favourites include Sarah J Maas’s A Court of Silver Flames and The Cruel Prince by Holly Black.

When I’m not writing or master planning my next book, I’m an editor, outline coach, and self-publishing consultant. (That’s probably why you’re here!)

I have a fatal weakness for washi tape, fountain pens, and anything yuzu-flavoured and love to spend time relaxing with my BuJo where I plan world domination. I like cats, coffee, and cocktails.
