H. CLAIRE TAYLOR has lived in Austin since the eighties (it's her hometown) and hasn't yet found a compelling reason to move away. 

After being a Very Good Student™ of creative writing at Texas State University, she worked an assortment of not-quite-right jobs. Eventually, though, her inner tortured artist recovered from the four soul-crushing years of academia, at which point she held her nose and jumped into the muddy waters of writing comedy full time.

Now she shares a home with her husband and two black-and-white mutts and suffers from an unhealthy dependency on Post-It Notes that she can quit whenever she wants. Really.

When she’s not writing, you can find her reading (usually about psychopaths), thinking about ghosts, or enjoying long hikes in the Texas heat.
