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.

Big shout out to @gabrielalborozo and his wonderful illustrations. @Scholastic

I am so bowled over by the news of this! Children donning red backpacks & embarking on an adventure together? All to raise money for our refugee aid teams? @ishaq_yasmin I am speechless. As in there will never be enough words. Ever. @RefugeeWeek #RefugeesWelcome #RefugeeWeek

It makes me grin from ear to ear.

The dictionary has not been kind to those in politics. From centuries past it offers the following:
snollygoster: an unprincipled politician.
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

Make sure the women in your life don't lose out when they stop work.

Now we all feel a little bit smarter.

Calling all talented writers. If you love making tricky, technical subjects clear, we could be a great match.

Josh has good taste. It's a great book. @Waterstones #bookreviews
