Dana Scott Clarke
Dana Scott Clark is the pen name of an Episcopal priest living and working in Seattle. Much of Monstrous Affections is a creative interpretation of his own personal history. Much of the character of Jack is based on his first partner dead now many years.
Fr. Clark has been a priest for twenty years and has served as the Vicar of two parishes and presently hangs out regularly at another. He has just received hi post masters in pastoral counseling and lives with his partner of eleven years on one of the hills near downtown Seattle.
Unfortunately, Fr. Clark’s present (and second) partner, a college professor of Jewish extraction, is deathly allergic to cats and dogs. However, until meeting his partner, he was always at the beckon call of a cat. In Monstrous Affections, Max is blend of several deeply loved feline family members now departed. May they rest in peace.
As to Mother, she was never an alcoholic but rather a devout Churchwoman of many years as well as the world’s greatest mom. Now a widow nearly ten years and having suffered a stroke four years ago, she lives in an assisted living residence about a half a mile from Fr. Clark’s home. She and Fr. Clark are the best of friends. She’s still feisty at nearly 94.
