Claudia has enjoyed writing since her youth, composing short stories, memoirs, and poems at her leisure. Her passion has competed with a myriad of other interests such as reading, playing the violin, sewing, teaching school, and raising six children. These experiences, along with living in Europe and various states throughout the country, have brought insights and heart to her writing.
Now settled in her home state of Arizona and with her children grown, Claudia finds more quiet moments to write. She still craves time with her children and 17 grandchildren, traveling to visit them in four different states with Randy, her sweetheart of 44 years. She enjoys visiting historical sites and browsing through antique stores she finds along the way. Her enthusiasm for all holidays, especially the Christmas season, is hard to match. An optimist and a survivor, Claudia values every day, living life to the fullest and finding joy in the simple things.
