CLAIRE COOK is the bestselling author of three novels, Multiple Choice, Must Love Dogs and Ready to Fall. She has been a judge for the Thurber Prize for American Humor and is a member of the Cape Cod Writers Center faculty. She lives on the South Shore of Massachusetts with her husband, two teenagers and their dog, where she is currently hard at work on her fourth novel, which has a Hollywood twist.

Multiple Choice, Cook's third novel is the #2 BookSense 2005 Summer paperback pick. It was also a BookSense pick in hardcover, a BarnesandNoble.com Book Club pick, a More Magazine Don't Miss selection, and a Book-of-the-Month Club and Literary Guild selection. Multiple Choice has been optioned for the screen by Working Title.

As a book, Must Love Dogs (2002) was a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Pick, a BookSense pick in both hardcover and paperback, and a Book-of-the-Month Club and Literary Guild selection.

Cook wrote her first novel, Ready to Fall (2000), in her Ford Windstar outside her daughter's swim practice at five in the morning. Happily, she has left her minivan and writes in a home office now. A former teacher of physical fitness, including open ocean rowing, as well as creative writing, she also worked as continuity director of a radio station. Visit her website at www.clairecook.com.
