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.
