Claire Waller was born in Portsmouth. She was a Secondary school English teacher for quite a long time, which meant she was around books all day. She's always been writing in her spare time. She has had two adult horror novels (Predator X, Nine Eyes) published by Australian indie publisher, Severed Press. Chimera is her first YA novel.
Claire lives with her husband, two daughters, a cat called Hiccup, and various dinosaurs. Her interests include drawing, baking, palaeontology, zombies, and roleplaying.
