About Claire Chilton

After completing her honors degree in English Literature, Claire Chilton was interviewed to work for m15. Fortunately, for the sake of the United Kingdom, she did not get the job. Now a web designer and graphic designer with a passion for great stories, she writes about the adventures she’d like to have.

A prolific writer with wide-ranging interests, Claire specializes in romantic and speculative fiction, which includes genres such as mystery, science fiction, fantasy, horror, comedy and romance. Her mystery romance novel, Hustle, won Harlequin’s So You Think You Can Write contest in 2013, and her previous books in The Demon Diaries won the Most Read award on Wattpad.

After exploring the world in her misspent youth, traveling across Europe, Africa, and the Caribbean, she now lives in an ancient Roman city in Yorkshire with her husband and a fluffy kitten called Shadow, who is convinced she is a bigger cat than she is.

Synopsis for A Hint of Magic

THE DEMON DIARIES is a darkly funny young adult series that combines GOOD OMENS style wit with urban fantasy stories similar to CASSANDRA CLARE’S MORTAL INSTRUMENTS to create an enthralling paranormal series that you won’t be able to put down.

Embark on the first exciting adventure for free with A HINT OF MAGIC.

She’s looking for a hint of magic in her world…
Dora Carridine is fed up with her life as a preacher’s daughter and sets out to explore the darker side of life instead. If she can find some magic in the world, then maybe she will find a place she belongs.

When she comes across a coven of witches, she takes on their trials to try and join them. But the witches aren’t all they appear to be, and Dora finds herself slipping into a darker world than she imagined.

She has to make a choice to do the right thing, but Dora’s never been very good at doing anything right…

My Review for A Hint of Magic

As I was reading this little gem, I just kept thinking, Dora is the same age as my daughter! Unfortunately, my kid has not taken my love of reading or anything paranormal, and instead just loves being a teenager. A Hint of Magic was the first book in the series, and it brought me wanting to read more into the series to see what kind of magic is brought in. I love anything witchy regardless if it is YA or not. I need to know what other trouble she gets herself into!
