At school, Clayton was interested in the arts, but left school at 16, discouraged by conventional career paths. In her late teens, she trained as a field archaeologist, spent a brief time working as a freelance illustrator, then returned to education in her mid-twenties, studying film and screen writing. She wrote her first novel at 26, after the birth of her daughter. This was followed by The Roar several years later.
