Clare Rhoden 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.
Clare’s novels include the first and second books in The Pale trilogy of dystopian sci-fi:
The Pale trilogy #3 is coming in 2019 … watch for updates …
Clare completed her PhD in Australian WWI literature at the University of Melbourne in 2011. Her academic book The Purpose of Futility: writing WWI, Australian style, was published by UWAP Scholarly in 2015.
Clare also studied for a Masters of Creative Writing in 2008, in which she investigated the history of her grandparents who emigrated for Europe to Port Adelaide in January 1914. The Stars in the Night is the result of her research.
