Claire wrote her first book in her minivan at 45. At 50, she walked the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of the adaptation of her novel, Must Love Dogs, starring Diane Lane and John Cusack.

"Cook's penchant for hitting the emotional sore spot and combining it with humor hits the mark." -New York Journal of Books
