I'm Clare Blanchard, author of crime novels and other mysteries. There's often a bit of history and ancient biblical stuff thrown in, and some quirky humour. Be warned: my themes, and sometimes my humour, can be dark!


I was born on the Yorkshire coast in Bronte territory, but have spent half my life in the wine-growing south of the Czech Republic, where a lot of my writing is set. 

When I'm not being noir, I love craft beer, fine wine, reading (naturally) and knitting funky socks.
