Claire has been an avid reader ever since the first Nancy Drew book she read years ago. Since then, she's surrounded herself with books. Over the years Claire has worked in libraries, both academic and public, taught writing to reluctant college freshmen, and facilitated several writers groups. She holds a Master's in English and a second Master's in Library Science. When not writing, Claire attempts to control a large perennial garden, mess around in the kitchen (really big messes, too!) and take long walks along the many beautiful beaches of New England, offering the perfect way to conjure up another romance.
