Claire McPherson

Claire McPherson is a first-time author and illustrator. Her debut children’s book ‘Eddie the Ogre’ is a tale of the magical mishaps of a little Ogre, who dreams of being a magician. The book started life as a little drawing project back in early 2015. The sketches were put away and forgotten about for years, until Claire’s son Eddie found them whilst rooting around in a drawer he shouldn’t have been in! The expression of wonder on his face as he turned each page was the inspiration Claire needed to finally finish the book and illustrate the last few scenes to make it complete.
