About David Clark

David Clark is a terrible dancer, former fake fighter, and recovering oranger. His oranging career effectively ended when he was intercepted and physically detained in a dark alley by a victimized college football player and was then forced to either rat out his friends or have his arm broken. His friends have still not forgiven him.

He is now engaged in much safer pursuits as a corporate lawyer and formerly served as the general counsel of a major international media company, and has practiced law and lived in New York City and San Diego. He now resides with his family in his hometown, Mesa, Arizona.

His short story, "Candle," appeared in Irreantum, and his short story, "Rock, Squeak, Wheeze," excerpts of which appear in this novel, won the Moonstone Award in the D. K. Brown Memorial Fiction Contest and later appeared in Sunstone.
