About the author:
Claire Williams lives in Cheshire with her husband Howard and children Ava and Henry. She is proud to be called a ‘Clayhead’ – a person born in the Potteries (Stoke on Trent, UK) and will always turn over a china cup to see where it is made. She is a huge fantasy fan and will often be found snuggled in front of the TV with her children watching a sci-fi or fantasy movie. Smailholm is her first novel, inspired by visits to the Scottish Borders on family holidays.
