Claire Luana grew up reading everything she could get her hands on and writing every chance she could. Eventually, adulthood won out, and she turned her writing talents to more scholarly pursuits, going to work as a commercial litigation attorney at a mid-sized law firm. While continuing to practice law, Claire decided to return to her roots and try her hand once again at creative writing.

She has written and published the Moonburner Cycle and is currently working on a new trilogy about magical food. She lives in Seattle, Washington with her husband and two dogs. In her (little) remaining spare time, she loves to hike, travel, binge-watch CW shows, and of course, fall into a good book.

Set measurable goals for yourself and track them. Writing a novel is like eating a watermelon: you do it one bite at a time.

Don't worry that what you are writing might be too similar to some other story already written. As Anna Quindlen said, "Every story has already been told." The point is, YOU'VE never written that story before. If you write the story you want to write, it will be unique.

Take a long term viewpoint and approach. We are an instant gratification society, and it's easy to get discouraged when you don't see instant results or success. But if you are truly want to be a writer, keep at it. Learn how to do it better. There is no special sauce, only hard work. So do the work, and little by little, you'll get there. (less)

2020 Year Ahead & 2019 Roundup

Wow guys, I can’t believe it’s 2020! I’m really excited about the year ahead, but this is also a really good time to reflect and revisit on how last year went!

My 2019 resolutions were a lot about slowing down and working smarter, and I’m really happy to report I was super successful at that! I barely worked on the weekend at all last year, and the amount of extraneous stuff I found myself doin...

“And you’ve got great legs, so wear the damn skirt,” Emi said.”
Claire Luana, Moonburner

“personal chocolate tarts filled with molten raspberry filling that spilled out in a dreamy puddle of fuchsia when sliced into. When Wren took her first bite she closed her eyes, savoring the tangy bite of the dark chocolate mingling with the buoyancy of the raspberry.”
Claire Luana, The Confectioner's Guild

“Daughter of Azura. Daughter of Miina. Hear these truths. The moon cannot enslave the sun, nor make the day its mistress. Or victory shall spell defeat, a crimson sky its auspice. The sun and moon must shine as one, or all will be undone.”
Claire Luana, Moonburner
