"Claire is a dream.  She’s a powerhouse in the lifestyle space, with years of experience putting together campaigns and events to maximize book sales.  She is savvy, connected, and so hardworking.  Her attention to detail is masterful and she leaves no stone unturned.  She is truly tenacious and she cares deeply about her clients, and what more could you want from a publicist? I can’t recommend her highly enough."


"Claire’s focus isn’t just on a client’s single project, it’s on making a client’s career. Claire and I have worked together on four books. From the start, she’s been my champion and greatest asset in selling books and getting outstanding publicity on a national level. Whether it’s the Today Show, The Talk, The Kitchn, People Magazine or Better Homes & Gardens, she tirelessly pursues every avenue and valuable contact for clients not just during that small window during launch but years afterwards."
