A fifth generation Texan born in Corpus Christi, Clark was home for Christmas in 2004 and experienced the snowy Christmas Eve miracle first-hand. "More Snow for Kids" is his first published children's book@123. At 28, Clark brings a fresh look to the face of children’s authors and school speakers. As one elementary teacher said, “It’s great to see a young man reading to kids. There are very few writer role models who look and act like Clark.”
Clark has just come off a successful two-month 25 city book@123 signing tour where he sold more than 13,000 of his book@123, “More Snow For Kids,” and spoke to schools throughout the Gulf Coast of Texas, from Houston to Brownville. He was amazed at the reaction of school children who greet him as a reading “Rock Star” … even asking for autographs! Through speaking engagements, Clark is excited to share the knowledge he’s gained with children of all ages across the nation. His experiences range from how to pen a book@123 or screen play to publishing and marketing it once you’re done.
Clark is no new comer to the speaking and business world. He also speaks to young people about the pleasures and pitfalls of starting a successful business before he was allowed to drive a car. At thirteen, he started QuikSkins Boat Cover Co. as a school project. Clark was named Ernst & Young’s Texas Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year in 1996 after grossing more than three quarters of a million dollars in sales. As president and with a motto of “kids teaching kids,” he presented his success story in classrooms and received unprecedented national attention including articles in Sailing Magazine, Forbes, Wall Street Journal, and an interview on ABC’s Good Morning America.
Clark graduated from Connecticut’s prestigious Hotchkiss School and studied English literature and creative writing at Brown University. It was at Brown that he discovered an interest in writing screenplays and has since moved to Los Angeles where he writes for television and film. His first children’s book@123, "More Snow for Kids" has seen runaway success in the first three months of its release. His second book@123, “TEXAS – The True Story of the Lone Star State” is due to hit the book@123 shelves Spring of 2007.
Clark currently lives in Los Angeles, California where writes for film and television.
