Clare L. Deming lives in New Jersey and once applied to be an astronaut. She writes science fiction and fantasy stories with a variety of characters, settings, and themes. Her fiction has been recognized in the L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers of the Future contest and has appeared in Space and Time Magazine, Perihelion SF, and several other venues. She is currently working on numerous short works as well as two novels: Starblight (space opera) and Badge of the Black Dragon (alternate history/fantasy).
Clare also works as a freelance writer and editor, writing on topics such as online gaming, pets, and travel. She loves to read as much as she can and writes book reviews for Book Spot Central and Indie Reader, and occasionally here on her blog.
When not busy writing, Clare spends her time fencing. She has been competing in sabre for nearly twenty years, traveling across the United States and to Europe. She has been ranked nationally and has lost to Olympians. Clare is also a licensed pilot, and flies a Cessna 172 on nice days.
