Thank you courtesy of Frank Floatcheese.

My librarian name is: Miss Barb Hustlefish. Truthfully, we do call our sweet lady Miss Barb!

And in case I AM a librarian??

Mine is Corabell Limpincheese. (I confess I made up “Corabell” but the rest is accurate.)

I have a wee problem with this, in that the last sandwich I ate was cheese and beetroot!

Mine would be Freda Staggerchip! 😂

Hmmm... I am a librarian, have been for over 30 years. Do I have to change my name?

So what am I up to at the moment, youre no doubt asking. Or you might not be, but Ill give you a quick update anyway. Once again, Ive found myself in the position of working on three books at once purely because I love to make things hard for myself. Im going through edits for the first of my historical novels for Bookouture, which is set in Paris and Hertfordshire during and just after WW2 (I was about to direct you to a Pinterest board with photos Id collected for it, but I appear to have deleted it by accident, so that was clever). Im also writing the second book, which is set in Florence in a similar period, and which gives me a great excuse to spend all morning looking at Google Streetview images of Italy. Then of course the third project is the next Freddy book, which is still in the early stages. I have no date for that yet but I will keep you informed as soon as I figure out what Im doing. Overcommitted, you say? Nonsense.

Hold on, panic over! I found the Pinterest board. Here it is: www.pinterest.co.uk/clarabensonbooks/historical-fiction/

Freddy is the bestest character! Please put him first. 😍 Also I'm so glad that at the end of last Angela book you listed the authors that inspired you. Now I'm reading them, while I eagerly await your next book. Also, I loved the story of how Angela met William. It warmed my ❤ so much.

The historical books sound awesome and of course I'm SO eagerly awaiting the next Freddy book!!!

I’m constantly jotting down notes or saving ideas to Pinterest boards for about 5 books. All different time periods. Lol

Remember to take some time for a cup of tea and a cookie. Looking forward to reading all your hard work!

Superwoman! Keep those books (gems) coming.

i look forward to reading them!

Waiting breathlessly for them all!!!! So glad you found the board again. Clicking right now!

Currently enjoying Freddy series and so delighted there is another coming 😁

Bon courage!

Reminds me of the children's story with the train engine! 'I think I can, I think I can....' 💫

You're busy enough to stay. out of trouble......you can leave the mischief to Freddy.

Make the Freddy book top priority, Clara, please.

skip everything but Freddy!

Just keep on writing! But don’t forget Freddy!
