Clare lives in Devon with her husband and two children. She teaches in a primary school and has over ten years experience in Early Years and Key Stage One. In 2014 she became a Specialist leader of Education, supporting local schools to achieve high standards in phonics, primary languages and the Early Years Foundation Stage.

She is also an active member of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and recommends a SCBWI membership to any budding author and/or illustrator.  In 2013 Clare joined the SCBWI-BI Celebrations Team and writes articles for the Words & Pictures Magazine, celebrating member achievements.

Clare loves adventure and says the greatest adventure of all is being able to write stories for children. She says that people tell her that her stories are hugely original, imaginative and about topics they could never think up.  Her school colleagues say she never thinks small and when Clare says ‘I’ve got a good idea!’ …they usually run and hide!

In 2013, Clare won The Margaret Carey Scholarship for Picture Book Writers and she received Silver Medal at The Greenhouse Funny Prize 2014 for her picture book, Aerodynamics of Biscuits, which is due to be published by Maverick Arts Publishing in September 2015.

Clare is represented by Alice Williams of David Higham Associates.
