Claire S. Lewis studied Philosophy and French Literature at Oxford University and International Relations at Cambridge University. She then qualified as a solicitor working in aviation law for a London law firm and later as an in-house lawyer for Virgin Atlantic. She kick-started her dream of becoming a published author (and finding an outlet for her over-active imagination) by taking creative writing courses at the Faber Academy where she was inspired by so many talented fellow-writers and industry professionals.
Born in Paris, she’s bilingual and now lives in Surrey with her family. When not making up stories of psychological suspense, she loves reading those of others, watching films and visiting exotic locations ‘for the purpose of research’!
