Claire Mitchell is a mother of three, residing in the tranquil suburbs of Surrey, not far from the bustling metropolis of London. Her life is a delightful blend of family, furry companions (two dogs, one cat, and five mice), and a deep connection with nature, which she cherishes.
Balancing her roles as a part-time massage therapist and Reiki practitioner, Claire's most cherished and cherished role is that of a dedicated mother. Her family includes an enchanting, tall, and humor-filled eleven-year-old daughter, as well as a pair of energetic seven-year-old twin boys. It's her twins who have ignited her passion for writing.
Claire's debut book, (Title TBD) was inspired by her daughter, who has faced challenges related to anxiety and neurodiversity from a tender age. Claire's intimate understanding of her daughter's struggles has allowed her to see the world through a unique lens, one filled with compassion and understanding.
Beyond the anxiety and associated behaviors, Claire sees a deeply sensitive, charismatic, and innocent child who thrives on open hearts, patience, and understanding. These qualities are woven into the fabric of her book.
The inception of this book occurred on a day like any other, after Claire dropped her children off at school. Witnessing her daughter's anxiety and emotional struggles during school goodbyes, Claire yearned to provide her with a comforting reminder of home. Thus, the idea for her book was born—a book that could serve as an invisible bond between parents and children during their time apart.
Claire hopes that parents can read her book to their children, fostering an enduring connection that transcends physical distance. She aspires for her book to offer both children and parents valuable lessons in emotional regulation and togetherness.
Among Claire's favorite books is "Guess How Much I Love You" by Sam McBratney, a story that conveys a powerful message of love and connection. She also treasures "The Boy, The Mole, The Fox, and the Horse" by Charlie Mackesy, finding empowerment in its message: "Always remember you matter, you're important and you are loved, and you bring to this world things no one else can."
Claire is dedicated to sowing seeds of self-worth and self-love in the hearts of children. If her book can impart these essential messages, she will consider her mission accomplished. Her deepest desire is for readers to enjoy her book, find opportunities to connect with their children, and draw upon the profound lessons it imparts, a gift that would grace us all.
