Author Clare London is an accountant by day and fiction writer by passion. She seems to resonate with the main character in Chase the Ace because she too seeks a little adventure. She writes books in many different genres and settings because she likes a little variety in life. Most of her titles are male-on-male romance novels, but as long as it is good fiction, she is happy to write it.
Chase the Ace is the story of a young Daniel Cross who has settled into a routine and is bored with his job. Discovering social media appears to be the remedy for his daily doldrums so he begins tracking down some childhood mates from the Scorching Summer Sports Club of 1990. He lost touch with his “Gang of Four” after that summer, but now he launches a personal quest to find out what kind of man each boy has become. Along the way he meets a new friend, Nick, who develops into more than a buddy. When the “Gang of Four” finally reunites Dan's emotions range from heartened to disturbed. Nick’s company is a constant support though neither of them are prepared for the exposure of personal secrets they’d thought were long-hidden. Dan begins to suspect that he’s really looking for a direction in his own life—and the excitement and purpose he craves may be closer to home than a quest with its roots in a boyhood dream.
Clare London fashioned the character of Daniel Cross off her grown son's twenty-year-old buddies. "They're still having fun with life, but starting to think about growing up," reflects Clare. The title Chase the Ace also has special meaning for the author because it brings back happy memories of her childhood playing this game with her family.
