Who are we?
♥ Claire Boston was a voracious reader as a child, devouring anything by Enid Blyton as well as series such as Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, The Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High. Then one school holidays when she’d run out of books to read, her mum handed her ‘Hot Ice’ by Nora Roberts and she instantly fell in love with romance novels.
When she’s not reading or writing she can be found in the garden attempting to grow vegetables, or racing around a vintage motocross track. If she can convince anyone to play with her, she also enjoys cards and board games. Claire was born in Western Australia, and lives just south of Perth, with her husband, who loves even her most annoying quirks, and her two grubby, but adorable Australian bulldogs. Her debut novel What Goes on Tour was published by Momentum in February 2014.

She escapes the real world to write stories starring spirited heroines who give the hero a run for his money before giving in.

Her not-so-miniature Daschund, Sam is her critique partner and keeps her company while writing. Juanita loves to hear from fans and would love for you to enjoy herwriting journey with her at:
