About this author

Claire J. Griffin has been an educator all her life and finds her students a constant source of inspiration. Her years as a writing teacher in a community college near Washington D.C. helped her understand the importance of friendship in the lives of her students. This is what she writes about in her first novel, Nowhere to Run. It is a realistic, contemporary story about friendship and the hard choices it can bring. Nowhere to Run has received a star from Kirkus Reviews.

Claire and her husband currently live in Brooklyn, where she enjoys ethnic food, street art, riding the subway and overheard conversations.

She has been a competitive rower for eleven years.
