Claire Fayers was born and brought up in South Wales, an area of the country sadly deficient in dragons. Having studied English at Canterbury University, she built a successful career writing short stories for women's magazines until the lure of magic became too much and she wrote The Accidental Pirates: Voyage to Magical North. It was selected for Waterstones Book of the Month and shortlisted for the FCBG Children's Book Award 2016. The sequel, Journey to Dragon Island was published in 2017, followed by Unwise Magic in 2018. When she's not writing, you'll find her at her allotment. She has produced some magnificent onions, but her dream of growing a straight carrot still eludes her.
