Claire M. Banschbach also writes as C.M. Banschbach.

Claire M. Banschbach is a native West Texan. She discovered a deep and abiding love for fantasy and science fiction at a young age, prompting her to begin exploring worlds armed only with an overactive imagination and a pen. She's an overall dork, pizza addict, and fangirl. She enjoys meshing stories of family and faith with healthy doses of action and adventure. She talks to fictional characters more than she should while trying to find time for all their stories.
She currently resides in Arlington, TX where she works as a Pediatric Physical Therapist.

I haven't actually, but I've been to a lot of small towns like it. One stop light and a Dairy Queen is all you need. :P"


Haha, they don't even have any stop lights! And the only restaurant is Pal's Diner. They do have a nice-sized school, though.

So cool! I love the drive-in movie theater. I watched Planes there.
Have you heard of Ackerley? That's an even teeny-tinier town close to Lamesa where my aunt lives. I think there are five streets in the whole town...
