Clare Sita Fisher was born in Tooting, south London in 1987. After accidentally getting obsessed with writing fiction when she should have been studying for a BA in History at the University of Oxford, Clare completed an MA in Creative and Life Writing at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

An avid observer of the diverse area of south London in which she grew up, Clare's writing is inspired by her long-standing interest in social exclusion and the particular ways in which it affects vulnerable women and girls. All The Good Things is her first novel. She now lives, writes and works as a bookseller in Leeds.

"I devoured Darling in a couple of days; told by two unforgettable female narrators, it's urgent, original and genuinely unputdownable."

The Lost Letters of William Woolf (2018)
Helen Cullen
"A novel to get lost in. Warm and funny and set in a world that is both recognisable and completely the talented Helen Cullen's own."
