My big news is that I’ve been offered a contract by award-winning, independent publisher Choc Lit. I’m hugely proud and delighted to be joining such a talented team of authors, and to be part of a really forward-thinking enterprise. I’m also more than grateful to Choc Lit and its tasting panel, who gave my work the thumbs up!

Although my real name, Wartnaby, is very close to my heart, I can’t deny that it is a) a bit hard to spell, b) somewhat hard to say and consequently c) a challenge to remember. I’m therefore going to write as Clare Chase.
