Regina Clarke

Biography

REGINA CLARKE was born in England and grew up near Boston, Massachusetts. With a doctorate in English, she taught at CUNY and then spent many years writing for corporations, creating books on network management systems, virtual protocols, and military surveillance software. (Who knew!) But during those years, writing books and stories, especially fantasy, mystery, and science fiction, was her passion.

Her short stories have appeared in Thrice Fiction, Kzine, Mad Scientist Journal, Over My Dead Body!, NewMyths, Aurora Wolf, Alien Dimensions, and T. Gene Davis’s Speculative Blog, among others. She has also been a ghostwriter, published a book on environmental management, and created an online workbook on soul development for the A.R.E. in Virginia Beach. Regina was a finalist in the Hollywood SCRIPTOID Screenwriter’s Feature Challenge for her script about a mother seeking the disabled child she had abandoned, in “Second Chances.” In October 2016 her YA fantasy book MARI was a finalist in the ListenUp Audiobook competition. Her short stories “Calliope” and “Stopover” have been featured on The Strange Recital podcast in Woodstock, NY.

After working on both coasts, in Texas, and overseas, Regina calls the historic and beautiful Hudson River Valley region her home now, and it pleases her no end to live not very far from where Rod Serling grew up and Jane Roberts encountered Seth.
