Claire is an artist and a writer. She lives in Peoria, IL with her husband and their cat, Muffin, who she did not name. If reincarnation is the upshot, she’d like to come back as a basset hound or, failing that, a redwood.

At this very minute, Claire might be writing and drawing Human Resources, a dystopic science-fiction murder mystery set in the near-ish future, when much of North America is under water and big cities have built levees taller than skyscrapers to protect themselves from a drastically altered planet.
