Hi, thanks for stopping by, my name's Claire Wade and I'm a life-long reader, daydreamer and now a soon-to-be published author.
I won the Good Housekeeping Novel Competition. My novel, The Box, is going to be published on 25th July 2019, by Orion.
I am represented by Amanda Preston from LBA Books. I'm really excited that my novel is going to be published and I can't wait to see what the future brings. You can read more about me here...
I was bed bound for six years with severe ME, trapped in a body that wouldn’t do what I wanted; my only escape was through my imagination. I now write about women who want to break free from the constraints of their lives, a subject I'm deeply familiar with.
My favourite things are books, baking and the WI. I'm the founding president of a modern WI (Women’s Institute) and run a baking club for other cake lovers. You’ll find me in my writing room, nicknamed Narnia because it’s also home to a wardrobe and is the place where I escape to other worlds. I'm happiest if I've got a slice of chocolate cake, a cup of tea and a good book.
