Hello and welcome! I am Claire and I have been reading and listening to stories since a ridiculously early age. The daughter of a British lit teacher (and self-professed Anglophile), I had little hope of avoiding my mother’s apparently genetic predisposition to the written word. Saved by Grace and the strong female influences in my life (you know who you are), I am a planner and organizer at heart. My eclectic taste in books includes: mystery, horror, memoir, nonfiction, fantasy, classics, women’s fiction, YA and especially those well-written comedies with a snarky tone.
As a boymom to two rough and tumble little boys, I spend much of my time refereeing wrestling matches and searching for the source of random smells. When I am not reading, momming or making lists, I love cooking real food, running (slowly), taking photos and drinking the occasional glass of wine.
I am very happily married to an amazingly supportive and patient man and live outside of Dallas, Texas, with my precious family and one sweet little dachshund named Newt.
If I am not here writing about the latest meal I am cooking or book I am reading, you can find me on social media (Instagram, Facebook). If you want to reach out to me directly, feel free to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
