Writer Biography

Nelson Clark has lived in a cave in the jungle along the Na Pali coast of Kauai, burrowed down in the double-wides of the deep South, and cavorted in the Yankee enclaves of The People's Republic of Cambridge, MA.

He has been an actor, a solider for nine years in the U.S. Army, a tour guide on the Kilauea Volcano, an advertising copywriter and worked in architecture, among many other occupations.

He has published two novels, non-fiction, several plays have been staged, television has been written for, and along the way several screenplays have been optioned.

Through all this, Nelson Clark remains optimistic. About this life. This world. About most people. That's what becoming a writer taught him. That, and knowing that writing about himself in the third person fools no one.
