Hi, I'm Claire. I am a writer, poet, playwright and occasional artist. I prefer writing mysteries and thoughtful action stories in an alternate future or fantasy setting. I write for the mid grade readers to young adult about topics from mermaids to Santa to mice learning how to write. I have a collection of poetry called TOSKA, the Art of Misery scheduled for release to ebook in May 2015. I wrote a lot in my youth with several pieces published in local papers and magazines. in High School and College, I was on newspaper staff, then somehow I got confused as an adult and lost my passion for practicality. Now I am back on track. I am interested in networking with beta readers, editors, proof readers, social media publicists, web masters and of course other writers. Find me on twitter @clairecount or www.clairecount.com Nice to meet you.
About Claire Count's Reading & Writing
mmm Books. nom nom nom Currently reading The Pickup, next is The Alchemist just finished Chris Woodings' Havoc, read kid's books Chee-Lin, Pete the Cat Play Ball, Books from Christine Feehan & Sherrilynn Kenyon's paranormal romance, from Douglas Adams to Roger Zelazny One summer I read ALL the science fiction in the library. Started with A and went to Z. Was 2 full bookshelves. - Verne, Wells, Sturgeon, & Gibson, Bradbury Asimov & Heinlein Next I hit mysteries - Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes, Campion ( Best detective no one knows), every Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, Trixie Beldon out in the 80's, I love philosphy - esp Camus and Ionesco I have a MFA in Theatre so I read plays - Tom Stoppard "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" is a particular favourite. Shorter to say what I don't read... I don't care for realism - too much of that in everyday life. Mysteries/thrillers that are too real and contemporary. I like to sleep at night.
