Gene Clements

Biography

Gene Clements is an artist, architect, and educator. He began the Tilly and Elmer series by writing a couple of paragraphs about a frisky older couple. His friends thought they were funny and wanted to find out what was going to happen if he finished the story. Now they know, for better or worse.
Gene grew up in a small town in the Midwest although he now lives in California. He thinks he’s eighteen, but he’s really the same age as Tilly and Elmer. These stories aren’t necessarily autobiographical. Gene knows a lot of interesting people and has a prolific imagination; a dangerous combination.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
By now, I know my characters pretty well. I love trying to figure out how they would respond to situations that come up in the stories. I'm often surprised at the result, I even try to talk them out of what they want to do sometimes, but they always win the argument.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I draw. I practiced architecture for about forty years and drawing was a great hobby because no one could tell me they didn't like my work. Well, they could tell me, but since they weren't my client, I didn't have to listen. These days I belong to a figure drawing group. We draw together once a week, and I often draw in coffee shops, on the beach, or wherever. I have done all my drawings on the iPad (including the illustrations in my books) for several years.

Series

Tilly and Elmer - The Sexy Seniors of South Branch
These fictional stories chronicle the romantic, usually erotic, and almost always humorous, adventures of Tilly and Elmer, a Midwestern couple in their late sixties. They’ve been married for close to fifty years, and would appear to the casual observer to be the definition of an “old married couple”. But while they ARE a couple, AND married, they don’t consider themselves OLD. In fact, they still feel like teenagers most of the time, although sometimes events remind them that they aren’t quite as athletic, skinny, or flexible, as they were five decades ago. No matter. They try to recapture their youth anyway; and when they can’t quite recapture it, they at least give it a good chase. Along the way, they have some fun and get themselves into, and usually out of, some humorous situations. What they’ve lost over the years in body tone, they have gained in expertise, imagination, and good humor.
Tilly and Elmer FlashbackX - Coming of Age in South Branch
In Coming of Age in South Branch, Tilly and Elmer, sexy sexagenarians from Iowa, reminisce about their passionate, clumsy, delicious, funny (or so it seems in retrospect), and “educational” high school romance. The book describes the delights and disasters experienced by students of do-it-yourself sex education (the only kind available in the Midwest during the early nineteen-sixties). The learning was all hands-on in those days. Of course, this was Tilly and Elmer’s favorite subject and they pursued it with scholarly dedication. Beginning just before their junior year with Elmer’s discovery, at the local swimming pool, that Matilda Williams, a girl he had known since second grade, could be a possible candidate for his teenaged erotic fantasies, through two years of attentive study in the arts of love, until they tearfully depart for colleges two thousand miles apart, each was responsible for the best part of the other’s education. Their recounting of those days, even though it includes a bit of selective memory and revisionist history here and there, is sweet, nostalgic, funny, and a little dirty. Sometimes more than a little.
