PRAISE FOR CLAIRE’S BOOKS: “The exuberant and charming Claire Cook is one of the sassiest and funniest creators of contemporary women’s fiction,” according to The Times-Picayune. People magazine said Claire's writing “goes down as easy as it sounds,” Good Housekeeping called it “laugh-out-loud,” Redbook “gleefully quirky” and the Chicago Tribune “funny and pitch perfect.” Shelf Awareness said, “Claire Cook (Must Love Dogs) has build a brand writing light-hearted women’s fiction blending kernels of the absurd and comedic in compulsively readable combinations.”

Claire has been a judge for the Family Circle magazine fiction contest, a finalist and a judge for the Thurber Prize for American Humor, and the Beach Book Festival fiction and grand prize winner. She has spoken at the Tennessee Williams Literary Festival, Cape Cod Writers Center, Savannah Book Festival, the California Women’s Conference, and given keynotes at the Dress for Success International Conference, the Missouri Writers Guild Conference, and the Amelia Island Book Festival, and has become a sought after reinvention speaker. Her books have been translated into 14 languages.

She was a teacher for sixteen years before writing her first book, and worked with children from preschool from middle school, teaching everything from multicultural games and dances, to writing, to open ocean rowing. She was born in Virginia, and lived for many years in Scituate, Massachusetts, a beach town between Boston and Cape Cod. Claire and her husband have recently moved to the suburbs of Atlanta to be closer to their two adult kids, who actually want them around again!

Never Too Late could not have come at a better time for me. After reaching that certain age, I had been feeling lost and not sure how to go about "fixing" myself. As soon as I saw this book I purchased it right away, didn't even have to think twice. Ms. Cook offered great advice and made me realize that I wasn't alone in this. Her stories about her experiences in Isla Majures were not only informative but entertaining as well. Telling how others reinvented themselves was so helpful and inspiring. Thank you Claire Cook for helping me get to where I need to go on my own personal path to reinvention.

I'm a big fan of Claire Cook's novels, and this first nonfiction book of hers has made me an even bigger fan. Reading Never Too Late is like spending time with someone who not only cares what happens to you, but also has the information you need to reach your dream. And instead of keeping it to herself, she actually shares it! Unlike most self-help books, this book has concrete answers and useful strategies, as well as lots of inspiration, terrific stories and great quotes. I read it on my iPad and then bought the paper book so that I could cover it in highlights and Post-Its and read it when I need it. Well done, Claire.

Another one knocked out of the park! Fantastic romantic comedy light enough to sit on the beach with and in depth enough to not lose interest. As always, the recipe gentle tucked in the pages is something I always try and enjoy. With the story line being so realistic, it is very easy to relate to Sara or her sisters at any given time. When is the next one coming????
