224 Claire Christian - Dreams Do Come True
Just before her first book launch, Claire is given an unexpected gift by her friend: the self-published adolescent masterpiece of a rom com she wrote when she was 14. Claire Christian is a playwright, author and theatre maker, who has spent a lot of career working with teenagers. Her first novel, Beautiful Mess won the Text Publishing Text Prize in 2016. Her play Lysa and The Freeborn Dames debuted at La Boite in 2018. She directed Michelle Law’s smash hit comedy Single Asian Female. And her next novel will be released in October. Claire has a pug named Midge, a deep affinity for garlic bread, and she never has boring hair...ever.
