Hello there! I’m Clare Lockhart, and I want to welcome you to my website!

I write light-hearted, paranormal, cozy mysteries featuring middle-aged sleuths who are going through a few changes. Some are welcome (freedom to live the dream) and some not so much (supernatural abilities and a rash of murders).  
If you like reading about best friends who find themselves in the odd pickle, twisty murder plots, and cheeky, paranormal visitors, then you’re in the right place.  
As is often the case with authors, my real life influences my stories. I live in a small town, a stone’s throw from Lake Ontario, in Canada. I’ve had great times traveling around the Great Lakes which is why I set the Midlife is Murder series on the south shore of Lake Superior in the quaint, fictional town of Bookend Bay.

I’ve recently taken up sailing with my partner, John. Sailing has to be one of my most challenging and rewarding life experiences, so many incredible experiences that I decided to give my main character in the Midlife is Magic series a sailboat of her own.

I come by my interest in the paranormal honestly. My dad loved this stuff, so it was natural for me to believe there was more to our world than we perceive. This is why you may find a ghost, or a psychic, or even a parallel universe in my stories.

Since I found the love of my life later on in life, my main character just may do the same since everybody deserves a good romance!

On that note, I also write time travel romance. You can find those books under my other pen name Sharon Clare.

That’s enough about me. I’d love to know about you, so please drop me a line anytime!
