Saint-Clair definitely belongs to a rare breed of contemporary lesbian writers who achieve a lot more then mere titillation.
Her writing,in the genre of "the thinking woman's lesbian romance," is solid, sensuous and evocative.
Her first novel, North And Left From Here, set mostly in Spain and Algeria, is centred around the character of Alexandra DelaforÍt.
Benchmarks, her second novel, focuses on unattainable female desire. It is set in the Montmartre district of Paris, the French snowfields, and the Riviera.
Silent Goodbyes is set in Australia, on board a yacht sailing the Whitsunday Islands in The Great Barrier Reef and in the river city of Brisbane. It introduces Emilie Anderson as the central character.
Risking-me is about emotional triggers, its backdrop the disturbing reality of woman to woman violence.
C.C. Saint-Clair is currently working on her sixth novel, Far From Maddy; a love duo between Jo, a twenty-three year old who ‘self-medicates’ emotional wounds by choosing homelessness as a way of life, and Maddy, her lover, who tries to rein her in. The backdrop for this gritty but urban tale of love is the inner city park of New Farm, in Brisbane.
