​Meet Claire McEwen:

​Claire McEwen's writing career is proof that miracles can happen. She entered the first chapter of her first manuscript into Harlequin's annual So You Think You Can Write Contest.​​She didn't place in the contest, but an editor at Harlequin asked to see a full draft of her contest entry.​  After many revisions, that first manuscript became her first book, A Ranch to Keep.


Claire's stories have been described as "sweetly sexy," "gritty," and with "characters you'll fall in love with." For inspiration, Claire draws on her many past misadventures and an overactive imagination. She likes to write big stories with big emotions. Her heroes and heroines have to overcome personal challenges and make difficult decisions on their road to love.
