Instead of writing about ourselves, which is awkward and tedious, Clare and I decided it would be fun to write introductions for each other. So here it goes!
Clare Louise Moore, at the ripe age of 21, graduated from The King’s College in New York City, where she majored in politics, philosophy, and economics. She is an avid reader, writer, drawer, and pianist. She is a quadruplet and has a younger brother as well, which means she has four crazy and amazing brothers. Clare was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California, where she enjoys biking, playing tennis, and long walks on the beach. Seriously. Clare has always loved books, especially Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and her room from childhood onward became a shrine to all things Tolkien.
Clare and I went to the same junior high, and knew each other a little. The first conversation I remember having with Clare in eighth grade was about the best way to poison a person undetected, and I obviously wanted to get to know her better. I got that chance in ninth grade, when Clare and I became good friends. Seven years later, Clare is the best friend I have ever had. She is the only person I’ve met who also lives and breathes stories. She is scary smart (hence the whole graduating from college a year early thing) and has a gloriously biting sense of humor. She also has an incredible eye for character and plot, and knows a good narrative like the back of her hand.
During her three years on the East Coast, Clare and I explored Washington D.C., New York City, London, Paris, and Oxford together. We have had so many crazy adventures and made so many memories. Now that she is back on the West Coast, we are working together to conquer the nasty three hour time difference through sheer willpower, and keep up with each other through near constant text massaging (thank you, unlimited texting services!).
As much as she loves to read, Clare also loves to create her own stories. I am not at liberty to divulge anything about the plot or characters at this time, but trust me. It is going to be awesome. Like I said, the girl has an eye for stories.
