Welcome to From the Pen of Mae Clair, the official website for author, Mae Clair. I’m glad you decided to visit and hope you’ll stroll through some of the pages on my site.

I’m a hybrid author with eclectic tastes in both reading and writing. My novels have been traditionally published with Kensington Books/Lyrical Underground and Lyrical Press. I also have a few indie titles in the mix. Primarily, I’m an author who writes mysteries and suspense with a smidgen of romance and elements of urban legend or myth.

As an author who likes to blend genres, I hope you’ll find something in the smorgasbord I have to offer.

Behind a legend lies the truth…

As a child, Eve Parrish lost her father and her best friend, Maggie Flynn, in a tragic bridge collapse. Fifteen years later, she returns to Point Pleasant to settle her deceased aunt’s estate. Though much has changed about the once thriving river community, the ghost of tragedy still weighs heavily on the town, as do rumors and sightings of the Mothman, a local legend. When Eve uncovers startling information about her aunt’s death, that legend is in danger of becoming all too real…

Caden Flynn is one of the few lucky survivors of the bridge collapse, but blames himself for coercing his younger sister out that night. He’s carried that guilt for fifteen years, unaware of darker currents haunting the town. It isn’t long before Eve’s arrival unravels an old secret—one that places her and Caden in the crosshairs of a deadly killer…
