Claire McMillan is the author of Gilded Age, inspired by Edith Wharton’s House of Mirth (Simon and Schuster).

She grew up in and around Pasadena, California, but for some reason people always ask if she grew up in Philadelphia.

She is a recovering attorney, having practiced complex corporate litigation in San Francisco for six years.

She holds an MFA in creative writing from Bennington College.

She currently lives on her husband’s family’s farm, about a half hour outside Cleveland, with her husband and their two children.

    I’m re-reading your book in anticipation of your upcoming release. Guilted Age is just as nice the second time around!
