Or, All you ever wanted to know about Clare, but were afraid to ask.
Clare is a British author. She lives in a small town just outside Reading, England with her husband, whom she married in 1992, two of their three grown-up offspring, Tilly the black cat, and Ty the black collie cross huntaway. Clare is half English and half Welsh, which makes watching rugby interesting at times as it doesn’t matter who wins.
Writing from an early childhood and encouraged by her teachers, she graduated from rewriting fairy stories through fan fiction to using her own original characters and enjoys writing an eclectic mix of romance, crime fiction and children’s stories. When she’s not writing, she can be found reading, crocheting or doing the many piles of laundry the occupants of her house manage to make.
Her books are based in the UK, with a couple of exceptions, thus, although the spelling may be American in some of them, the books contain British language and terminology and the more recent ones are written in UK English.
The first draft of every novel is hand written.
She has been a Christian for more than half her life. She goes to Carey Baptist.
She, for some reason known only to herself, wrote this page in the third person. She loves watching TV. Current addictions are Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, Chicago PD and 911. With a little SVU thrown in as well. She also likes Casualty, Holby City and Doctor Who. Past obsessions are Blake’s Seven and Stargate SG1.
