An award winning, multi-published author, Bryan Thomas Clark is a boisterous extrovert who is a proud member of the GLBT community. After twenty-seven years in law enforcement, he retired in 2015. Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Bryan now lives in the Central Valley of California with his husband of thirty-one years. Behind his keyboard working on his next novel, Bryan writes gay fiction with an emphasis on a moral dilemmas and M/M romance.
On the rare occasions he isn’t writing, Bryan enjoys traveling, following his husband around the state of California to various equestrian competitions, laying by a body of water soaking up the sun, and watching a good movie while snuggled up with his husband on the couch.
For many years now, in fact since he was in high school, Bryan has enjoyed writing. It all started one summer when he accidently stumbled over a book called the ‘The Front Runner’ by Patricia Warren on his mother’s bookshelf. Admiringly, it was the cover that really caught his eye as a gay 15 year old adolescent. Patricia’s emotional tale of male / male romance opened Bryan’s eyes to a whole new world. The very next fall, on the bus ride to school, a good friend and he, started to put their own wild imaginations to work. For the forty minute ride to school, Bryan talked, she wrote. That book was never completed, but it sparked something within him. The ability to create a world on paper that he imagined.
Bryan’s love for poetry came many years later. It was Maya Angelou, Iyanla Vanzant and yes, Jewel that taught him that you can put emotions on paper. As a very private person, letting someone into his most vulnerable space without fear of judgment or embarrassment could have never happened without them showing him the way. Over the years Bryan wrote and created, always for fun and as a creative outlet. Bryan never gave any consideration that anyone would read his work, let alone publish any of it. It wasn’t until in 2012, Bryan let his husband, an avid reader himself, read some of his work. To Bryan’s surprise his husband thought it was good. Bryan recalls his exact words were ‘Oh my God, this is really good.” Well of course Bryan was thinking “you’re my husband you’re supposed to say that”. Days later Bryan’s husband approached him again stating that he couldn’t stop thinking about what he had read. He added that he thought he should try to have it published.
So here Bryan’s public journey begins. This Website is where he will share with you bits and pieces of his work, update you on the material he is working on, and keep you informed on the journey of publishing his work. He hopes you enjoy reading his work as much as he has enjoyed writing them.
