About the Author

From Hamilton in Lanarkshire, Clare has a History degree from Strathclyde University and now lives in London with her husband. Having spent some time trying to find some magic in various fields, she is now concentrating on her career as a writer. Clare was drawn to writing by her life long passion for reading and inventing stories. As a child, Clare loved nothing more than curling up on a window seat in her local library and being carried away by a magical story. A fantasy fiction fanatic, she has published two books in The Staff Wielder Series as well as writing other stories of a fantastical nature.

This novel is well written with some interesting characters and views on the afterlife. It progresses at a steady pace and although there aren't any major twists or turns, the story keeps a hold of your interest.

I've read Clare Wilson's Staff Wielder novels and loved them, so when I saw this new series by the same author I couldn't wait to try it out. I wasn't disappointed - this is a gripping tale with an interesting take on the afterlife. Couldn't put it down, can't wait for the next installment in this series!

There's nothing so gratifying as having your opinion validated so if, like me, you often think that hell is other people in the here and now then this book won't change your life. However it might bring some welcome food for thought about what's in store after life's extinct to know that, for most of us, Heaven's on hold and you get to stick around this mortal coil (unless you're a child or a VIP) and hang with your family, or in this age of dysfunctionality, with other like-minded souls. Nothing much is said about the other place, but there are malignant souls cropping up and it's a nice idea to have exorcism as a valid alternative for banishing, even if the priest performing it gets more than he bargained with a one way ticket to the pearly gates as one of the few 'important' souls who do get to join the heavenly host.

For heroine Portia there's no such luck, but luckily for her some of the good guy stick-around souls track her down and help her acclimatise to the afterlife and make new friends who show her the ropes to manifesting and how to travel to places she holds dear. There's even a soulmate for her in the irritatingly attractive shape of David. This gets 4 stars from me only because 5 means it's one of the best books I've ever read (whether or not it has flaws) and, whilst there's much to admire with the great writing and imaginative conceptualising it stays at 4 because I didn't feel the passion flowing too much, probably because Portia's diffident and drifting character traits were something of an anchor, however well expressed. I wish we could use a decimal rating system because this would definitely be worth a 4.5 rating and I'd certainly happily read other titles by this writer in the future - so I will!

Really good read for paranormal fans who don't need blood and full tilt horror the whole time and also fine for a more sensitive YA readership.

If you've never read Clare Wilson before then you don't know what you're missing. She weaves such a wonderful spell with her creative story telling that you don't want to put your book down, a definite page turner.

Heaven’s Waiting Room is a uniquely interesting take on our existence after death. It is written from the perspective of a young girl named Portia who unexpectedly dies around the age of 18. Portia is destined to spend her eternity on Earth with many others who have not been invited into Heaven. This is not because they are bad people, but Heaven has become so overcrowded that there are certain qualifications a soul must possess in order to gain entry. Children, however, are automatically admitted.

Most of the book deals with Portia’s acclamation to the afterlife and the challenges she faces in learning to adapt. Toward the end, we learn more about the “bureaucracy” of Heaven and the so called bureaucrats’ take on those beings assigned to the Earthly plane. Portia becomes a pivotal figure in promoting a change for the better, and the book ends on a high note.

I thoroughly enjoyed this selection, and if the afterlife really is as Clare Wilson imagines, then it’s not so bad. This makes a great weekend read.
