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.
She spent the last 14 years living in southern France with her family, and has recently relocated to Gloucestershire: another happy ending of sorts.
Her two novels are The Night Rainbow, (Bloomsbury, 2013) and Everything Love Is (Bloomsbury, 2016).
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.
