Who is Claire?
a short biography
Claire Wallis has penned hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles over the last ten years, with science playing the lead role in almost all of them. Though non-fiction writing will forever be her first love, fiction has unexpectedly swooped in, hooked her by the soul, and become her true love. As a result, Claire’s writing career has shifted, and in addition to rocks, plants, insects, and microbes, she also now puts human characters in the lead.
Claire’s first novel, Push , was released by MIRA Books in May of 2014. The follow-up novel, Pull , was released soon after. Her newest title, The Sound of Light , was released in July of 2017.
Claire’s previous jobs include working at a limestone quarry, hawking vegetables at a farmer’s market, clerking at the dollar store, and convincing new mothers that they need to renew their subscription to that parenting magazine in order for their child to survive. She lives in Pennsylvania with her amazingly awesome husband and son.
