Claire King grew up in South Yorkshire, studied economics at Newnham College, Cambridge and then spent twenty years working in business before remembering what she wanted to be when she grew up.

For the last 14 years she has lived in southern France with her family, but will shortly be moving to Gloucestershire, which she would describe as a happy ending of sorts.

Her first novel – The Night Rainbow – is published by Bloomsbury.

Everything Love Is will be published by Bloomsbury this coming July.

Claire also writes short fiction, which has been published online and in print and has been recognised by fancy places such as BBC Radio 4 Opening Lines, New Scientist, The Bristol Short Story Prize, the Sean O’Faolain Short Story Competition and Metazen.

Her short story, Wine at Breakfast, is published for kindle and kindle apps, with all proceeds to Ukraine Crisis Relief. Please see here for more details.
