Clare Helen Welsh

Clare writes picture book texts - sometimes funny and sometimes lyrical. Her first picture book was published in 2015, and she currently has books in development with Little Tiger Press, Quarto, Andersen and Nosy Crow.

Clare lives in Devon with her husband and two children. She teaches in a primary school and has over ten years experience in Early Years and Key Stage One. In 2014 she became a Specialist Leader of Education and supports local schools to achieve high standards in phonics, primary languages and the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Her colleagues at school say she never thinks small, and when Clare says ‘I’ve got a good idea!’ …they usually run and hide!
