Clare Lydon is a writer, journalist and blogger based in London, UK. Her journalism career has seen her write across many genres including food, football, design, games & music. Now a fully fledged fiction writer too, Clare’s just completed her second novel and runs her own blog at www.clarelydon.co.uk 

When she’s not tapping at her keyboard, Clare can be found running along the banks of the Thames or watching an episode of the Gilmore Girls, an addiction she simply cannot shake. She’s also a keen cook and worships at the altar of Ina Garten even though the amount of butter she puts into every recipe is frankly obscene. She’d still love to be invited to Ina’s for dinner though.
