My name is Clare. I am an author, editor, artist podcast transcriber for For the Wild, tea-leaf reader at Psychic Sister, part-owner of Orca Books Cooperative, and community roof-top gardener located in Olympia, WA.
My work engages with themes of landscape and sense of home, semiotics and language, and magic and folklore. I use experimental non-fiction, memoir, poetry, fiction, and critical interdisciplinary essay to explore material of interest.
I am currently working on two books. How to be at Home is a series of prose vignettes comprised of memoir, history, literature, interview, and photograph encompassing the nature of home and being at home–in the body, in a dwelling, in a community. Spellbound: The Power of the Scientific Tongue is a collection of essays detailing the tyrannical power of plastic words while seeking to decolonize scientific language.
