Claire seeks projects with unique voices, interesting writing styles, and compelling characters. She enjoys the creative process of working with writers and collaborating closely with them throughout all stages of their careers. In fiction projects, she looks for psychological and commercial thrillers, serial detective stories, works of fiction inspired by actual crimes, mystery, suspense, cozies, anything involving serial killers, and contemporary family dramas. Claire is a lover of the dark and twisted, and she's happiest when reading manuscripts with unexpected endings, especially those that stay with you for days. Having grown up in Wisconsin, Claire has a special love of stories set in the Midwest.
For nonfiction, Claire looks for a range of projects, including humor, celebrity memoir, lifestyle guides, pop culture celebrations, and illustrated books for adults. While she is interested in a variety of nonfiction projects, those who have read this bio from the first line will not be surprised that her passion lies in true crime.
