Christopher Clark


I am an author and freelance journalist in London, Ontario, Canada.
I write articles for magazines, newspapers, websites and a variety of interesting organizations. I also teach journalism in the Faculty of Information and Media Studies at Western University in London.

When I'm not writing or reading, I play as much tennis as possible. I also play drums.

Tangled Strings is a thriller about international tennis gambling and match fixing. Pressured by ruthless gamblers to throw matches, a group of aspiring tennis pros fight back, often with dire consequences.

My first novel, Pulling Strings, is a mystery/thriller about murder, politics, baseball and sex -- not necessarily in that order. The story starts with the murder of the popular owner of the Baltimore Orioles, which affects the 2016 presidential race, well underway in neighboring Washington D.C.

Thanks for checking in. I hope you enjoy both books. If you do, please consider leaving a review. And drop me a line with questions and suggestions.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I've been a freelance journalist for more than 20 years. Initially, the thrill was seeing my name on a story in a newspaper or magazine. Then, because I was freelancing, the biggest thrill was getting paid for something I wrote.
I just completed my first novel, an enormous commitment of time with no guarantees it would be read as widely as my journalism pieces are read. The thrill is having completed the novel, being happy with the outcome, and looking forward to writing another one.
What do your fans mean to you?
I've often received feedback from readers of my stories in newspapers and magazines, online etc. Since I've started blogging, same thing goes. Feedback is great.
When someone takes the time to read my novel, I am genuinely thankful. If they like it and leave a review to that effect, it's even more gratifying.

When the popular owner of the Baltimore Orioles is murdered, the repercussions reach nearby Washington D.C., where the 2016 presidential race is in full swing. Nothing is as it seems in this taut mystery/thriller that mixes murder, politics, baseball and sex – not necessarily in that order.
