Claire Allan  

I'm a mother of one who works full time as a journalist and spends my evenings writing fiction aimed at the Contemporary Women's fiction market.

My debut novel, 'Rainy Days and Tuesdays' was released in the summer of '07 by Poolbeg Press in Ireland and became a number two bestseller.
My second novel 'Feels Like Maybe' was released in September 2008 and also hit the bestseller list in Ireland.
My third novel, Jumping in Puddles, will be released in September 2009.
By day I'm a mild mannered reporter for the Derry Journal.
I've worked as a journalist since 1998, after graduating with a Masters Degree in Newspaper Journalism. My passion in journalism lies in writing human interest features and opinion.

I am represented by Ger Nichol of The Book Bureau.
