Clare Weze writes novels, short stories and microfiction for both adults and children. One of the things she
likes to work into her fiction is the contrast between the familiar and the strange. Clare grew up
between London and Yorkshire, worked in the fields of biological sciences, philosophy and
hairdressing, and spent years surfing between science and literature, city and country, the cerebral
and the practical. This has honed her curiosity about all aspects of hybridity.

Her short fiction has been widely anthologised and long- and shortlisted in several prizes,
including the Bridport, Northern Writers’ Award, Commonword, Fish, Bath Flash and Galley
Beggar Press.
