Baton Blog Hop

The Baton has been passed to me for the Baton Blog Hop from Claire Gem and here’s a little bit about her:

Claire Gem writes contemporary romance and women’s fiction. She’s an avid fan of spunky heroines and a good ghost story (not necessarily together or in that order). Her favorite authors include Robyn Carr, Kristan Higgins, Susanna Kearsley.

Phantom Traces (coming soon from Soul Mate Publishing)features dual-time love stories, and deals with the May:September romance, the ravages of Alzheimer’s, and one hell of a scary ghost.

Claire has several other novels in progress, including Electricity, another ghost enhanced love story set in the defunct psychiatric hospital in Central Massachusetts (the site on which she now works).

Claire’s idea of a great love story is one that transports you to another place and introduces you to new people so real, you miss them when you read The End.
