How can anyone survive as their world shifts underneath them?

The Stars in the Night is the result of her research.

Clare also writes sci-fi and fantasy. She lives in Melbourne Australia with her husband Bill, their super-intelligent poodle-cross Aeryn, a huge and charming parliament of visiting magpies, and a very demanding/addictive garden space.
