Literaty Agent

Claire started her career in non-fiction publishing before getting distracted by the digital world. She spent five happy years commissioning arts and culture projects that use new technology, then set up a mass-participation project to encourage people to sow native varieties of wild flowers for the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in London. She is currently Head of Copy at Quietroom, a team of business writers, trainers and strategists.

Walker published her first picture book, This is The Kiss, in January 2017; and Piper Verlag in Germany will publish the first installment in her debut MG fantasy series – Hattie Brown VS the Cloud Snatchers – in Spring 2019.

throttlebottom: a totally inept one.
catchfart: one that follows the prevailing wind.
virtuecrat: one convinced of their own superiority.

It’s publication date for Hattie Brown. I’m so excited. @piperverlag @PFDAgents @sfmolteni
