Debut novelist, Claire Gillian, set to debut The P.U.R.E. in April 2012

Claire Gillian has signed a publishing contract with J. Taylor Publishing for her debut novel The P.U.R.E, set in Dallas, Texas — a humorous, romantic suspense novel, featuring main characters Gayle Lindley and Jon Cripps.

Apex, NC – August 22, 2011 – Claire Gillian is a number-crunching executive by profession, an after hours writer by passion, and a darkly romantic curmudgeon. Published in short stories and anthologies, The P.U.R.E marks Claire’s official, and debut, transition to the publication of her work in novel form. While Claire’s writing spans all ages and subject matters, she’s happiest penning romance drenched in humor with a dash of intrigue.

The P.U.R.E., written for the adult romance reader, takes Claire’s humor, her knowledge of Corporate America and the illustrious accounting profession and mixes them into a humorous, contemporary, romantic suspense novel set in Dallas, Texas.

“Claire has a witty, comedic-infused style that keeps her characters real and allows a reader to connect with them. That her characters work in a profession that is counter-intuitive to humor (they are both CPAs) only adds to the irony and fun that Claire brings to her story,” says J. Taylor Publishing. “She’s taken corporate America and number crunching, as she calls it, and turned them both upside down, shaken out the pennies and dimes from the pockets and righted them again with a wonderful happily ever after.”

The P.U.R.E. will release in paperback and ebook simultaneously and will be available through bookstores and online print and ebook retailers on or about April 16, 2012. “What better day to release a romance feature two witty CPAs, than the day after tax day,” says J. Taylor Publishing.

Claire Gillian lives in the boggy Pacific NW with her husband and two teen-aged sons. For more information about the author, please visit her website:

    • Yayyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And THANK YOU for rescuing the headshot so the J Taylor folks didn’t run a stock photo of someone else and push for a JD Salinger on my part. LOL

  1. Wow, fantastic news! 😀 I’m so excited for you Claire, ‘congratulations’ doesn’t even begin to cover it – so super-duper-extra-strength congrats to you! *hugs*

    • Thank you, Silver!!! You were among the first brave souls to read The PURE way back when, and that was after reading my first horrid attempt at writing a novel. Words can’t express how extra, extra special your continued support has been.
