About Clara Wiggins
Along the way, she's picked up a husband and produced two daughters. She has also worked as a journalist, writer, diplomat, press officer, antenatal teacher, customer services advisor, coffee shop waitress and a school cook. Although the last one only lasted for a day.
Until recently, there were two things on Clara's bucket list: publish a book and swim with whale sharks. With the publication of the Expat Partner's Survival Guide, only one thing remains - and she hopes to tick that one off in the next year or two.

From how to organise an overseas move to what to do in the event of an earthquake, the Expat Partner’s Survival Guide is a light-hearted yet in-depth guide for anyone accompanying their partner on an overseas assignment.
In our increasingly globalised society, more and more people are moving to another country to work – and many of these people are taking their partners and families with them.
What does it feel like to sit at home alone in a strange country on the first day your partner leaves for work? How easy is it to find the right school for your child – and what happens if your child hates it there? Where exactly are you going to track down all the ingredients needed for tonight’s dinner? And what happens when it all goes very, very wrong?
This authoritative guide draws on the expert advice of more than 70 expat partners who have been there, done that and survived to tell their tales. The experts include author Clara Wiggins, who spent her childhood as a ‘trailing daughter’ accompanying her diplomat parents on various exotic postings including the Philippines and Venezuela. She later saw life from the other side, when was posted to Jamaica and then took her young family on her husband’s postings to Islamabad and St Lucia.
She is currently preparing for another move, to South Africa.
