I spend an awful lot of time reading crime and mystery fiction, watching it on the TV, and – of course – writing stories which contain various crime and dark fiction, and putting my characters into very uncomfortable positions so they can figure out what to do next.
However, I also have a ‘soft side’, where I’m not totally obsessed with murderers, crime-solving and other dark and creepy goings-on, and I thought it would be good to tell you about it (because we all have a multitude of interests).
As well as being a writer, I am also an artist, and have an ongoing series of colouring books, which I design and publish. If you are someone who loves colouring, or you know someone who does, then maybe these books are for you. Book 1 is out now, and the second one is already in the pipeline!
And if you’d like to see where else I hang out online, this is my art website: claireladdsart.com
