Clair Hume grew up riding horses with her two brothers on a small farm in Nar Nar Goon North before travelling around and around and around, and then coming back to Melbourne. She has been an underwater photographer (diving with whales, leopard sharks and Russian tourists) and an Antarctic photographer, a vineyard hand and a Santa elf. Today, Clair works as an editor and writer, and lives in Melbourne with her family. Do You Love Dogs? is her first book.
