Meet the Author
Claire J. Griffin has rowed competitively, traveled to seven continents, kayaked below the Antarctic Circle, camped in Africa, driven across the Sahara, eaten bugs, and been stung by scorpions two separate times. She has always said “yes” rather than “no” to adventure; this is likely why she identifies so strongly with Belle Boyd. Claire and her husband live in Brooklyn, New York. Claire is a fan of ethnic food, street art, riding the subway, and overheard conversations.
