Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my blog.

I fell in love with DC in the fall of 2009 (or possibly before then), and now I get to live here for two years and study for a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing at American University.

While I’m here, I want to learn as much as I can about how to be a better writer, but also about America and about Washington. I’ll be blogging about it all here from the perspective of a proud and sometimes bewildered Brit. I hope you find it useful, entertaining, enlightening, or a combination of the three.

In a previous life, I wrote a short book on language learning, which you can find here, and I had a blog on the same subject here. I also contribute to cafecollaboration.com, which reviews the best places for coffee, wifi and co-working in London, DC, and elsewhere.

You can follow me on GoodReads here, on Twitter here, on Pinterest here, and on Instagram here.

  1. Claire – I don’t know who to contact. I ordered your book awhile back and got notification that it shipped on May 20th… Still have not gotten it as of June 17th.

    Who do I reach out to?!? There is no information on thewestwingbook.com or the invoice. I am a huge WW need and have been eager to read the book. Help!

    1. Hi Thomas, I’m so sorry about this. Are you in the UK? The publisher is in the US and has been RUBBISH about sending the book to the UK – I’m not impressed. I can refund you and/or send you the book via Amazon (if you’re in the UK – if you’re in Australia or elsewhere I don’t think there’s an option!). Also I can send you the Kindle version if you’d like to apologise for your trouble. Message me your details/preference at https://www.facebook.com/WestWingBook/
