About me and my writing

Born in London and raised mostly in Yorkshire, I have British and Nigerian* heritage and write for both adults and children. I’ve always written around my day job, starting out as a hairdresser in London’s West End, then moving on to a science degree, postgraduate studies and work in the fields of biomedical and environmental research. I now divide my time between editing scientific publications and writing fiction.

I’m represented by The Good Literary Agency

My first children’s book, The Lightning Catcher, is out May 2021 from Bloomsbury Children’s

  1. Hi Clare. I’ve been exploring some of your short stories, and I really like your writing style. I’m a new writer myself and I’m just starting out. I also grew up in Yorkshire, in a little village named Birstwith, just outside Harrogate. I have a new literary blog I just started, and maybe you’d be interested in the concept and story prompt? Check it out when you have the time, and let me know what you think, https://thenumber26.net/
