Claire has been reading and listening to stories since a ridiculously early age. The daughter of a British lit teacher, she had little hope of avoiding her mother’s apparently genetic predisposition to the written word. As a boymom to two rough and tumble littles, Claire spends much of her time checking homework, breaking up fights, and searching for the source of random smells. She lives outside of Dallas, Texas, with her family and one little constant companion, a mini dachshund named Newt. She writes about her extremely eclectic reading life (she loves ALL the genres) and real food cooking at Book Lovers Pizza and on Instagram.
