Hello!

I’m Clementine, a prepublished author and blogger. In my day job I battle teenage ennui and thieves of time as a high school history teacher. I love it. (No really, I do.) In my spare time I write!

My first finished draft ever! You can tell I’m excited.

I write mostly paranormal and fantasy novels with a good dose of romance and adventure. I love telling stories about people who strive to be better than they think they are, usually whilst dealing with the kind of Big Bad you’d rather not face alone. I like a bit of humour so that creeps in as my characters find ways to achieve victory and love. And sometimes love iteself is the victory.

Coffee is kind of my life’s blood. Which is awkward when you tell teenagers to lay off the energy drinks as you dose yourself in ever increasing caffeine shots.

And cool students give their teachers cool coffee cups

Family is super important to me. I’m a single mother to the two most amazing sons. This has given me a much stronger insight into Nerf battles and Minecraft zombies than I ever thought I’d have. My sons also teach me about courage, friendship, resilience, and the art of laughing at yourself.

Best boys ever.

I love superheroes and Star Wars and all kinds of fantasy. I also love street art and collect Russian dolls.

This blog is about what I’m interested in and what I write about. I look forward to sharing my world with you!
