Clare Mulley is an award-winning historical biographer. Her first book, The Woman Who Saved the Children, about child rights pioneer Eglantyne Jebb, won the Daily Mail Biographers Club Prize. The Spy Who Loved looks at the remarkable life of Krystyna Skarbek, aka Christine Granville, Britain’s first female special agent of the Second World War, and has been optioned by Universal Studios. Clare’s latest book The Women Who Flew For Hitler is a dual biography of Hanna Reitsch and Melitta von Stauffenberg, the only women to serve as test pilots for Nazi Germany and both awarded the Iron Cross, but who ended their lives on opposite sides of history.



As well as speaking at Britain’s leading history and literary festivals, Clare has given a TEDx talk in Stormont, spoken at the Imperial War Museum, National Army Museum and British Library, and lectured on the female SOE agents of the Second World War for Historical Trips. Clare writes and reviews non-fiction for the Telegraph, Spectator and History Today. In 2017 she was chair of the judges for the Historical Writers Association Non-Fiction Prize, and she has recently become an honorary patron of the Wimpole History Festival.
