The other day, when searching Flickr for inspiring photos for my forthcoming middle grade novel Ghosts on the River, (when I found that wonderful photo of the girls - see post below), I also came across a marvelous picture of two boys in a rowing boat which seemed to me to capture perfectly the essence of summertime and being young and having adventures which lies at the heart of Ghosts on the River.
As the photo is copyrighted I approached the owner to ask how much I could pay him to use the photo on my site and he kindly gave me permission to use it free of charge as he is a fellow writer! How incredibly kind perfect strangers can be! Thank you, Deak Wooten.

Clare grew up in Constable Country not far from East Trimley where Kate Summers and Detective Vicky Allard solve their local mysteries and where The Bellamy Bird is set. Clare lived for many years on a street in Manhattan just like the street where Bella and Felix live although she was never chased through Central Park at night by a couple of failed fashion-world gangsters. Clare now lives on a high cliff next to a lighthouse in Australia where she plots and writes with her faithful chocolate labrador by her side.
