Few heed their warnings, and when the dragon attacks, even the elves dismiss the threat of Tizon's fire demons.

Although born in the U.S., she grew up as a “transfer kid,” moving 36 different times according to her mother’s final count, as her family followed her father’s job. She spent her childhood exploring castles, Roman ruins, the Black Forest, and numerous other places of legend and history. With no TV available, she became a rabid reader, devouring books on any topic, in particular fairy tales. “A modern day masterpiece" Kim Cross, Faerie Magazine “Firestar is by far one of the best books of the year" Nick Pena, President, Transylvania Records

In 5th grade she won a poetry competition, and continued to have stories and poems win school magazine contests. She became a reporter for Wellesley College’s newspaper, while earning her B.A. in English and Psychology. Claudia graduated with an MBA from Northeastern University, and in her corporate career was instrumental in numerous major product launches. She broadened her writing skills with packaging copy and marketing materials, and taught college-level marketing and advertising courses for several years. Feeling something “was missing in her life,” she launched her own marketing and communications firm, Acorn Enterprises, which enabled her to get back to the business of writing full time. She developed a penchant for writing travel articles, and enjoys bushwhacking for unusual personal angles on the places she visits, whether chasing after a grizzly in Alaska, wandering about a 5000-year old stone circle in Ireland in pouring rain, or donning a plastic garment bag to get up close and personal with Bridalveil Falls in Yosemite National Park. Her published short stories include “A Cat’s Gift of Faith,” in Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover’s Soul, and “The Christmas Tree Nobody Wanted” in Stanislaus Magazine. An experienced public speaker, Claudia writes regularly for a variety of publications, is a magazine editor for two regional magazines, and is a popular newspaper community columnist for The Modesto Bee newspaper. Claudia lives in California, and is now working on a new book. Asked during a recent interview what will happen to the féyree after the Chronicles are completed, Newcorn answered – “As with Anne McCaffrey’s remarkable Dragon Riders of Pern series, there may be more stories waiting in the wings. My féyree folk will have to let me know.” She collects antique fairy tale books, attempts to garden, is a certified holistic health care practitioner, and is passionate about hiking, animals, and the environment.
