I have to say being an author is a joy, but there are days when the writing isn’t going well and I start to doubt myself. If that happens I read a positive review and it makes me feel better. I guess the hardest part for me is probably the marketing, because I’d much rather spend time writing.
Can you give us a short synopsis of PLACE TO BELONG?
Sean Flanagan has just discovered he has three half-sisters on the other side of the world. He travels to Houston to meet them and attend their weddings, but he’s terrified they’ll reject him. None of his other family have loved him, so why should they be any different?
While he’s there, he meets Hayden and the attraction is instant. But he can’t give into it, can’t let his sisters know he’s gay otherwise he’ll lose the last chance he has of finding family and a place to belong.
What inspired you to write this book?
Hayden inspired me to write this. He made his first appearance in Change of Heart as Carly’s personal assistant and I loved him so much, that I had to write his story and give him a happily ever after. So then I had to come up with a brother for him to fall in love with.

Title: Place to Belong
Author: Claire Boston
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Sean Flanagan has spent a lifetime alone and rejected, constantly hiding who he really is.
With a father who deserted him and a mother who despised him, Sean didn’t think things could get much worse … until he was kicked out of home for being gay. Now he’s discovered he has three half-sisters on the other side of the world. This might be his last chance to find people who will love and accept him. But he’s terrified that if they find out who he really is then they’ll reject him like the rest of his family.
Sean arrives in Houston and is stunned by the warm welcome he receives from his sisters. He begins to hope that maybe this time things will be different. That’s when he meets Hayden Johnson. To follow his heart means risking everything with his newfound family.
Hayden is tired of endless dating. He’s looking for a man to love, someone to spend the rest of his life with. His boss’s new brother ticks all the boxes on the attraction scale, but there’s just one problem – he’s not gay.
Will Sean let his fears rule him, or will he let in the chance of love and find a place where he belongs?
