Clapham started out writing Doctor Who fan fiction and, through Seventh Door Fanzines, began to work with Lance Parkin. Notable fan fiction work included Integration, a novella in Seventh Door's Odyssey series, edited by Parkin.
Having been asked to write a New Adventure (a Bernice Summerfield novel for Virgin Publishing) for the November 1998 slot, Parkin found himself too busy with other commitments to write a book on his own and, with editor Rebecca Levene's blessing, brought in Clapham as a co-author. Between them, the two devised Beige Planet Mars, a campus mystery novel set at a Mars University. Clapham was later offered the final Virgin Benny slot and, with a tight deadline, brought in Jon de Burgh Miller as his co-writer on Twilight of the Gods.
Clapham went on to co-write The Taking of Planet 5 with Simon Bucher-Jones in the BBC's Doctor Who novel line, before eventually writing his first solo novel, Hope. He wrote a comic in Accent UK's Zombies anthology. He has edited Secret Histories, a forthcoming Bernice Summerfield anthology.
He has written non-fiction, both reference books for TV (often with Jim Smith) and magazine work (notably for the official Warrior Princess magazine). He is also one of the owners and reviewers on the Shiny Shelf web-magazine.
