About this author


Yep, I'm flying down to Rio tomorrow for a week! I may not be online for a while, not sure what the arrangements are at the hotel.

Yes, I know the World Cup is over *g*.

This is a special commemorative visit. Hubby supports Exeter City football club, and in 1914 they were the only UK team to offer an international fixture to Brazil, who were hoping to join the world football stage, but needed cer... Read more of this blog post »

This was really charming, I loved it. It felt really plausible in real life, but with a mix of the enchanting frisson of romance and the twisty-ouchy struggles of young men growing up and finding their way.

I loved it. It was enchanting. Fiction should be like this - witty, uplifting, with a dollop of almost-angst, and with a strong flavour of how the author enjoyed writing it :)

“Mum calls you happy.” Emily giggled.
“Huh? I don’t know your Mom…” “She says men like you are happy!”
Garry stared at her, uncomprehending. He’d rarely felt less happy in his life.
“She means gay,” Max said, and now there was a grin on his face.”
Clare London, Between a Rock and a Hard Place

“She wriggled against him, obviously pleased. “So are you homey special?”
He frowned. He didn’t want to keep questioning her, but this one had him foxed. No combination of vowels or spoonerism made this one clear. Max barely moved his head but he answered as usual for her.
“She means ho-mo-sex-u-al.”

“He lives near me so we do some things together.” His throat felt tight. “Well, lots of things, actually. But of course we have our own lives. Both know it’s important we don’t get in each other’s way. It’s not like he needs me, needs my help for anything.”
“But you do.”
Garry turned his head so swiftly, he heard it crick.
“You need him,” Emily announced, gravely. “Don’t you?”
And while he desperately searched for something to say that would stop this right now, she peered carefully at his shoulders and neck.
“You need him to do your hair, to comb out those very nasty dangles. It’s difficult, I know. I can’t do my plates on my own.”
Max caught Garry’s eye. “Tangles,” he mouthed. “Plaits.”

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

“My experience of life is that it is not divided up into genres; it’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you're lucky.”

Clare LOL YOu're right, I'm not v active on here :). My blog posts come through on more regular basis, and I have been chatting over at the UK Meet GR Group. Honest! ^_~

It was a treat to meet you - and hubby too of course! who must think we're all loonies - and MANY thanks for the lovely photo :):)

Keep in touch! x


message 7: by Danni

Danni Well, I was just about to say how nice it was to meet you at the UK meet and I see that I posted the last message here in November! I guess you're not very active on GR.

It was lovely to meet you and thanks for being so welcoming to poor old hubby!

We Brits must stick together :D. Seriously, I enjoy writing in my native world. When I first started out, the market was largely in the US, so I generalised a lot of my settings. But no more of that now :)

Danni Nice to meet you Clare. Thanks for accepting the friend request. I love reading stories written in a Brit voice - makes me feel at home!
