Clare Pooley spent nearly 20 years in the heady world of advertising, working hard, playing hard and drinking harder. In 2015 she realised that her alcohol consumption was out of control and quit drinking. She started writing a blog called Mummy was a Secret Drinker by way of therapy.
That blog went viral and became a memoir - The Sober Diaries. Clare then turned to fiction. Her debut novel - The Authenticity Project - was a New York Times bestseller, was translated into 30 languages and won the RNA debut novel award.
The People on Platform 5 is Clare's second novel.
