Clare Rhoden writes science fiction and fantasy in her *spare* time.

In fact, she always has.

When she’s not writing, Clare is a volunteer coordinator with Story Dogs, which is a reading support program for primary children that harnesses the awesomely positive power of dogs.

Clare is a speech pathologist who has also worked as a learning skills adviser, a student services manager, an online learning and teaching consultant, and  lecturer in English literature. Her PhD, “The Purpose of Futility”, investigated Australian WWI literature.
