Claire E Cruddas
My name is Claire Elizabeth Cruddas and I am a novelist and poet from North East England.
‘The Fall of Grace – Book One’ is my first independently published full length novel but I have been a published poet for many years, with contributions in various national anthologies.
I started writing as a youngster, penning my first poem at five years old and then at twelve years old I won a commendation for a short story in a National Writing Competition. Spurred on by this early success, I contributed locally to independent magazines and newspapers and wrote stage-plays for youth theatre groups.
A long career in sales and marketing, both employed and self-employed, has afforded me with an extensive resume of business writing skills, however my love has always been applying the craft of writing to fiction.
When I am not writing, I love reading, history, art and strolling in the fresh air.
I am currently at the planning the stage of ‘The Fall of Grace – Book Two’ but I also enjoy writing for children and young adults and I am planning to release a poetry collection aimed at these audiences later in 2016.
Thank you for reading.
