Claire Cook wrote her first novel in her minivan at 45. Five years later, she walked the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of the romantic comedy movie adaptation of her second novel, Must Love Dogs, which she has since turned into a seven-book series. Today, Claire is a New York Times, international best-selling author of 20 books with an overarching theme of reinvention for 40-to-forever women. These have included two nonfiction books, Never Too Late:Your Roadmap to Reinvention and Shine On: How to Grow Awesome Instead of Old, as well as her most recent release, The Wildwater Walking Club: Step by Step.
According to The Times-Picayune, “The exuberant and charming Claire Cook . . . is one of the sassiest and funniest creators of contemporary women’s fiction.” And of her work, Shelf Awareness has said, “Claire Cook (Must Love Dogs) has built a brand writing light-hearted women’s fiction blending kernels of the absurd and comedic in compulsively readable combinations.”
