Who is Charmaine Clancy?

Brisbane author Charmaine Clancy loves to create characters for mystery, fantasy and adventure. All her stories are fictional, except maybe MY ZOMBIE DOG (some say to this day you can hear her dog softly moan the plea ‘braaaains’).

Charmaine was born the year man walked on the moon, and if more aware of the event, she probably would have thought it was a great setting for a murder. She grew up in the big city of Sydney. Her early school reports advised disapprovingly that she was always ‘daydreaming’. Obviously her teachers did not recognise and value the art of plotting. Despite this feedback, Charmaine loved studying and would later go on to University to gain her BA in Professional and Creative Writing. 

When not explaining the dangers of underestimating a fairy or the best spots to hide a body, Charmaine runs creative writing courses for kids and is now hosting online workshops. Her books include My Zombie Dog, Dognapped? A Dog Show Detective Mystery and soon to be released, Undead Kev. She loves all things Agatha Christie and is often watching those around her with suspicious eyes; on the off chance they ever do commit a cleverly devised crime.
