Claire Harcup


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. Piper Verlag in Germany is publishing her middle grade series; the first installment, Hattie Brown VS the Cloud Snatchers, came out on March 1st, 2019. The second book in the series, Hattie Brown and the Lost Seal, will follow on April 6, 2020, and the final book, Hattie Brown VS the Red Dust Army, will be published in Spring 2021.

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
