Clare Ashton is an award-winning indie author of lesbian fiction and f/f romances, with German translations of her work published by Ylva Publishing and Verlag Krug und Schadenberg.
Her dark romance After Mrs Hamilton is a Golden Crown Literary Society (Goldie) award winner and her first foray into romantic comedy, That Certain Something, was a Goldie and Lambda Literary Award finalist. Light romance Poppy Jenkins won the Rainbow Award for Best Lesbian Contemporary & Erotic Romance.
Clare grew up in Mid-Wales and has a brain stuck somewhere not particularly useful between the arts and sciences which may explain the disparate careers, from Little Chef waitress to copy editor for Soil and Tillage Research. She has been accused of sometimes living too much inside her head, but it turns out that this is good for writing stories. She lives in the Midlands with her wife and son and daughter who are a lovely distraction from writing.
