Claire Stibbe

Claire Stibbe was born in London, England. Her father was Headmaster of the King Edward School in Norwich and her mother was an SRN at the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.  Claire and her twin brother, Mark, were adopted and brought up in the unspoiled countryside of Bradfield College, Berkshire.

As a child, Claire loved the works of William Shakespeare and spent many happy hours watching the actors rehearse in the Greek theater at Bradfield College.  Charlie Lepper, Director and Producer of the plays at the time, instilled in Claire a love of reading and drama. This motivated her to begin writing stories from the age of nine.  Her father P.G. Stibbe, author of Return Via Rangoon, also instilled the importance of reading and spent many happy hours with his three children reading The Lord of the Rings during the school holidays.

After Claire graduated from Downe House School, she trained at the Baytree Hotel in Burford and at The Marlborough College, Oxford. She spent several years working in Cambridge and Hong Kong, and traveled to Crete, Cyprus and Egypt.  She latterly married an American and became a US citizen in 2008.

When she isn’t writing, Claire spends time with family and friends, reading books in the best of the local bookstores and drinking great coffee.  She lives with her husband and son in New Mexico, the land of desert sands, pueblos, roadrunners and breathtaking sunsets.
