Hello, my name's Claire, and I'm addicted to writing. That's why I've been ghostwriting for 9 years! I specialize in science fiction and fantasy for all ages, and have worked on cyberpunk thrillers, choose-your-own-adventure books, picture books and more.

I love nerding out about story, I love unique worlds, and I love complex characters. If you choose to work with me, we'll spend time giving your worldbuilding depth to make it stand out, and we'll populate your story with unforgettable characters. I work best according to a detailed brief, so the first part of collaboration will be going through your outline or synopsis and discussing exactly what you envision for your work. I want to make sure your book has the tone, themes, and story that you always envisioned. Once we've got a detailed brief, I can write fairly quickly, and my rates include one developmental edit once the novel is done. I usually send updates on a weekly basis, so that we can catch any issues fairly quickly and pivot if needs must.

I write up to 5,000 words a day, and my copy is clean, so if you need a quick turnaround I'm your lady! I know that style is a hugely important part of working together, so I'm also willing to do sample pages if you need.

Work experience


June, 2016 – Present (over 6 years)

I am the author of two YA Fantasies and one YA thriller, as well as many short stories ranging from flash fiction to novelette in length. My novels have been published with Little, Brown and Harper Collins, while my short stories have been published in professional, award-nominated magazines.

Ghost Writer

April, 2010 – Present (almost 13 years)

I have ghost written books for children and adults, Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books, short stories, scripts and more! Most of my work is protected by an NDA, but don't worry - I will use that discretion for you as well!

I'm always willing to try out a project so if you think we might be a good fit, let's work on some sample pages together.
