My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Claire Cook
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Karma is a boomerang. (One of my characters said it first!)

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I’d love to be a songwriter. I used to teach the Aerosmith kids, and right around the time my first novel came out, I had this great conversation with Steven Tyler. He wanted to know how I could write a whole novel, and I said that if I could say it in a song, I wouldn’t have to.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. People always say my laugh. They also often tell me I laugh just like one of my characters, which I think is interesting.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Mean people

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. That I’m still a bartender and I can’t remember where this drink should go. Oh, wait, that's the recurring nightmare.
