Details

Clare is a primary school teacher and children’s author who lives in South West England with her husband and two children. Clare does her best writing by the sea, which is lucky because she lives close to many beautiful beaches and the salty sea air.

When Clare isn’t writing stories she is inspiring children to write their own. Being a teacher gives Clare an outlet for her BIG ideas. Once she helped a class make a giant rice crispy cake that was so wide it wouldn’t fit through the door!

But her best idea yet has been putting pen to paper. Clare loves writing whacky but is particularly passionate about writing stories that help children deal with big feelings and difficult issues.

Clare is represented by Alice Williams of Alice Williams Literary.

Please get in contact if you’d like to book an event or live show. Clare loves all opportunities to work with young readers and their families.
