Authors A to Z - Claire Bott
Claire Bott is a journalist, currently working full time as a staff writer on Publishing News magazine.
She used to be a performance poet, before realising there was no money in it and opting to be a hack instead.
She quickly found out there was no money in journalism either, but by then she was hooked and it was too late. She wrote for The Independent, Men's Health and Comics International before settling down at Publishing News. The Clockwork Woman is her first book.
About The Clockwork Woman, she writes:
"I'm not sure what this book is. An SF retelling of the Pinocchio story; a gender-reversed Frankenstein; a coming-of-age parable Pygmalion and Galatea with a twist? Anyway, it's got plenty of hairsbreadth escapes, kidnappings and flights over the moors from psychotic robot dogs in it, so that's all right."
