Claire is currently seeking non-fiction projects on a range of topics including pop culture/celebrity, gift books, memoir/hybrid memoir, biography, history, art, fashion, cultural criticism, and society/culture.
She is always keen to dive into niche topics and sub-cultures, including pop culture obsessions and analyses or insights into real or imagined communities.
She gravitates towards insightful projects on a less explored topic particularly when done with humour and any subject which is meticulously researched and/or explores forgotten or hidden figures particularly from underrepresented communities.
Claire was previously in academia and holds an MSc. and PhD. in Applied Linguistics along with a Masters in Publishing from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. Originally from Ireland, she has lived in Europe, Asia, and Canada. These life experiences influence her list as she is always eager to work with academics to shape academic work into trade books and is equally enthusiastic to work with authors from a wide range of cultural backgrounds.
