Claire loves stories and drama but she never once played the Angel Gabriel in a school Nativity play. She studied English at Oxford, where she enjoyed reading lots of very old poems about monsters, battles and God. She gets her best ideas for writing when she’s walking her dog and loves living in Scotland because she likes shortbread and mountains. She lives with her husband and three children, who dared her to write Beastly Bible Stories.
