A Texan by birth, Puerto Rican by blood, and reader by nature, Claire is thrilled to be working her publishing dream job at Mascot Books. After a four-year love affair with modernist novels, Claire graduated from Reed College with a B.A. in English and a much-too-long thesis on feminism and the postcolonial flower garden. She’s worn many hats in her life, from copy editor and romantic advice columnist to graphic designer and Spanish Fulbright scholar, and continues to don those different hats at Mascot, where she enjoys having a hand in every stage of the publishing process. She loves reading—on and off the clock—and can often be found dancing tango, watching Jeopardy!, or brushing up on her Spanish. ¡Wepa!
