Claire Douglas

Claire D

Book: The Sister


Genre: Psychological thriller/suspense

Publisher: Harper

Publication date: 13th August 2015


I’ve wanted to be a writer since the age of seven and enjoyed scaring my little sister with sinister bed time stories when we were kids. I was a journalist for fifteen years writing true-life features for women’s magazines but never gave up my hope of becoming a novelist. My dream came true when I won the Marie Claire Debut Novel competition in 2013 after submitting the first three chapters of The Sisters.

Writer Superpowers

Route to publication – slightly unusual due to winning a competition on the first three chapters. Was a journalist so happy to write features or talk about getting published/writing
