Claire Saxby

Claire Saxby is the award-winning author of several picture books, including Christmas at Grandma’s Beach House and Christmas at Grandad’s Farm, both published by The Five Mile Press.

Claire’s family moved around a lot as she was growing up, and she went to nine different schools and lived in more than 20 houses. The plus side of travelling so frequently was that she was able to live in Bougainville Papua New Guinea for several years and had the chance to swim in “the clearest water imaginable, with the most pristine reefs and next to the most beautiful beaches.” Claire is still at her happiest when she is within cooee of water and has spent many happy hours in all types of weather with her children at the beach.
