(Cut to the photographs or go to my writing advice columns, originally published on NovelAdvice.com.)
I am a Canadian, born in Ontario, but by upbringing and choice a Westerner. I spent my childhood in various oil towns from Alaska to Newfoundland, but eventually stopped moving when my family settled down in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
I studied medieval history at various universities, ending up at Somerville College, Oxford University, where I graduated with a D. Phil. from Oxford University.
I moved to London to work in feminist publishing, then worked for various small publishers, in a bookshop, as a carpenter, a minder (bodyguard), a freelance editor, finally moving into website design and development, and I now work as a digital manager for a global financial services company in the City.
I live in a flat in Little Venice, in west London, England with my spouse Fiona (legal spouse, that is, thanks to Canada's commitment to equal rights for all).
I write poetry as "J. P. Hollerith"; it appears in the anthologies Beautiful Barbarians and Not for the Academy, both published by Onlywomen Press. Science fiction fans might remember my short story "The Rational Ship" in Memories and Visions (Crossing Press). November 2004 saw the publication of The Milk of Human Kindness: Lesbian Authors Write About Mothers and Daughters, edited by Lori L. Lake (Regal Crest). I have a story in it (obviously), but I am a humble member in a glittering line-up of lesbian authors. I was also invited to contribute a short story to Romance for Life, edited by Lori L. lake and Tara Young, published by Intaglio Publications, 2006. I have also written articles for NovelAdvice.com, an online magazine for writers that is now no more. All these articles can be found on my main website: www.caroclarke.com.
I would be happy to hear from you. I can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
