I am CLARE. I am a thirty-something who sometimes still passes as a 14 year old. I was born and raised in Boise Idaho, with my fellow FIVE siblings. I am daddy’s little girl, my mom is my best friend. I graduated from Utah State, and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications Studies, minors in Family Human Development and Women’s and Gender Studies, and a concentration in Computer Science, all in FOUR years! I worked full time as a social media consultant until my kids showed up and now a few hours a week. I’ve written three of my own novels, one being The Cost of Silence in 2017 and won NaNoWriMo Fan Favorite. I’m constantly editing them and querying.
My husband recently finished his residency in San Diego and accepted a job in Fort Smith, Arkansas as a Foot and Ankle surgeon. Now he’s on call half the month, to entertain myself, I read and write in between playing with our three kids.
I don’t remember a day growing up that my mother didn’t sit down and read to me. When you read to your kids, you give them the world. In the past six years I have tried increase the books I read a year and be more adventurous in what I read. I have found it’s not often that I read I book I don’t like or learn something new. When I pick up a book I get to experience the world from the comfort of my own home while saving a lot of cash- #medschooldebt. One day I will travel the world, until then I will live through the pages of others.
