Claire Fayers writes comic fantasy featuring swashbuckling pirates, evil magicians, heroic librarians and man-eating penguins. She grew up in South Wales, studied English in Canterbury, and is now back in Wales where she spends a lot of her free time tramping around castles in the rain, looking for dragons.

She has worked as a church caretaker, a shoe shop assistant, in accountancy, in health and safety, in IT, and in a library. Only one of these prepared her in any way for life as a full-time author.

(Ponders deeply) Right, this is a bit unorthodox, but Modesty Blaise and Willie Garvin from the Modesty Blaise books. They're not technically a couple but they are friends, comrades in arms and partners in crime. And Willie comes up with huge, extravagant romantic gestures, like the time he went pearl diving in every ocean in the world and chose the best pearl from each to make into a necklace for Modesty. I like to think Cassie O'Pia and Ewan Hughes are a bit like them.(less)
