Who is Claire Worsley? 

Graduating from a fashion and marketing degree, Claire worked as an assistant fashion buyer in London before returning to Wales to embark on an Art and Design PGCE. Within two years, Claire began working with SEN and loved the way her artistic background supported the sensory curriculum needed for this post. During this time, she produced several short stories for pupils, bringing them to life with story sacks. This led to her embarking on several writing courses and craft classes. Now, Claire brings her love of design to her work as a writer. Her short story, A Special Hero, will appear in Anansi’s Spring Anthology 2023.

The Secrets They Keep is Claire’s debut novel. She now lives in Monmouthshire, with her partner, sons and Cookie- the much loved and excitable boxer dog.
