Welcome to the website of Clare Dudman: writer of fiction and non-fiction inspired mainly by history and science.

I aim to bring history to life by fictionalising historical figures: both locally and in places as far apart as the Patagonian desert and the fringes of the Greenland ice sheet.


Plays based on real events from local history


Historical fiction, children’s fiction, short stories and psychogeography

Talks and Classes

Talks to audiences from ten to 250, classes to up to 12 students and articles for national and local publication.

“Dudman is a writer ignited by ideas, and history furnishes them…”
