Claire, locally known as Princess Pea, is something of a phoenix. She originally wrote, and published, her first set of novels while a married, foster mom with a seemingly normal life.

That all changed after a major life trauma, when Claire lost everything in her life- including her health.

She now lives in Washington DC with her two dogs and is an advocate for other adults with chronic illness. She is a cannabis educator and spends a good portion of her days giving other people with chronic illness advice on getting services, self care techniques, and using natural medicine.

I am also working on the "Daydreaming" series which is a novella series. I'm also working on a non-fiction of our family's journey adopting through foster care. I've usually got multiple story lines going on in my head at any given time, so I have a journal full of potential stories that may or may not come to fruition. (less)

“Asha, love, do you know what your name means?”

I nodded “Hope”
Claire Granger, When Faults Collide

“People like us, sure, we’re complex and complicated, but because of that- we could never have someone not complex.

So if I have to walk through a thousand hells to hold onto this gift, to hold onto you, I will do it…gladly.”
Claire Granger, When Faults Collide

“We (me and Mr. Green Eyes) have been living our lives on fault lines. Occasionally moving or causing friction but mostly just existing, waiting on the bang.

So here we were, two fault lines, existing and surviving, and we just collided full force. Are we going to be spectacular and create mountains, making beauty from our chaos, or are we a city leveling natural disaster?”
Claire Granger, When Faults Collide

“Why not think that sometimes—just sometimes—you can overcome evil with silence? And let people hear their hatefulness in their own ears, without distraction. Maybe goodness is enough to expose evil for what it really is, sometimes.”
Sylvain Reynard, Gabriel's Inferno

“I'm telling you, monsters aren't born, they're made.”
C.J. Roberts, Seduced in the Dark

“Life is not what it's supposed to be. It's what it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.”
Aleatha Romig, Consequences

“We’re more broken if we don’t have each other. Let me put us back together again. I need you, Olivia. Desperately. You’re making my world light.”
Jodi Ellen Malpas, One Night: Denied

“She had been forced into prudence in her youth, she learned romance as she grew older: the natural sequel of an unnatural beginning.”
Jane Austen , Persuasion

Pam Claire ~

Life has taken me hostage and has kept me away but I just want to say, THANK YOU for the gift of your friendship! Looking forward to sharing Great Reads with you in 2017 ❤muah❤




**btw ~ GR notifications doesn't like me very much, so if you reply back on your wall they won't let me know, I just don't want you to think I am ignoring you. Feel free and stop by my wall or drop me a message any time!

Serial is great! Very dark and twisted- but that's right up my alley! If you have kindle..."


LOL! I have I think over 2k books waiting for me on my kindle to read so I can justify Kindle unlimited yet, one day maybe but not anytime soon.


message 5: by Pam

Pam Hey Claire :) Thanks for the friend-vite! I'm in luck I have Serial on my wishlist, so score for me, glad it was a 5 star for you! I consider myself nice too, there's a nice way of saying you don't like something and there's the not so nice way, I choose nice all the time, unless they are some yummy alpha man who has a lil assholeness to him, lol!

**btw ~ GR notifications doesn't like me very much, so if you reply back on your wall they won't let me know, I just don't want you to think I am ignoring you. Feel free and stop by my wall or drop me a message any time! Look forward to chatting with you

I am! And yes, busy is one word to describe it! Luckily as my older two kiddos get closer to four it's getting a little easier and less demanding.

Luckily I have a pretty kick ass husband who has been BEYOND supportive of my writing!

My reading? Well...he tolerates that. Haha! Let's just say I have mastered the art of "hold the kindle while i-(fill in the blank with basically any task at hand)". :D
