Claire Mabilat is a British music historian living near Paris, in France. Following her PhD in music history at the University of Durham, she lectured there part-time and started to publish.

Following a career break to emigrate, learn French and start a family, she is now working on a historical novel based on the life of a sixteenth-century European composer.
