About the Author
A confessed romantic dreamer, Claire Delacroix always wove stories in her mind. While working as a technical writer for a software company, she began to look for a book to lose herself in for a few hours in the evening. When she couldn’t find the right mix of elements, she decided to write that book herself and unwittingly started upon a new career. Claire makes her home in Toronto with her husband, far too many books, and a variety of undisciplined houseplants. She is an avid needleworker and often sorts out plot tangles while knitting intarsia sweaters. Claire travels as much as possible, rides her bicycle everywhere, and cooks with enthusiasm—as long as someone else washes the dishes!
