It is my great pleasure to introduce Claire Youmans as Writing About Writing's first regular guest blogger.
Claire Youmans has published several books and written more than that. She's sailed oceans, owned horses and is currently ensconced in the Southern California mountains where she is writing, skiing, and messing about with boats. She's originally from Seattle but prefers snow and sun to rain. She travels extensively in Japan, and elsewhere, and is thoroughly enjoying writing The Toki-Girl and the Sparrow-Boy series of children's books, for 4th grade and up.
