Bri Clark did not begin life on an easy foot. Growing up on the poor side in a Southern town, Ms. Clark quickly learned street smarts, while at the same time caring for her brother within a broken home. After making a few bad choices, including leaving school, living on her own at a young age and participating in rebelious activity, a judge turned her life around by giving her a choice of shaping up her life or spending time in jail.
After this eye-opening experience, Bri Clark brought herself up from the dregs of the street, worked hard and ended up co-owning an extremely successful construction business. She then lost everything during the real estate crash. After this time, Ms. Clark moved west and lived with her husband and four children within a 900 square foot apartment.
Bri Clark often tells friends, “I can do poor. I’m good at poor. It’s prosperity that I’m not used to.” She and her husband Chris live in Boise, where she is known as the "Belle of Boise" for her "true southern accent, bold demeanor and hospitable nature."
Ms. Clark is no stranger in the publishing industry. She is a known author, professional reviewer, blogger, and author platform consultant. Bri Clark enjoys all aspects of her career; from the creation of story to the branding and marketing needed to make her books successful. Ms. Clark is a woman of many successes and talents.
Thank you for this interview, Bri. Can you tell us a little about yourself and how long you’ve been writing?
Gladly, I’m sassy, bold, impertinent in just about anything I do. I have two boys, two girls. Married to an alpha male with beta cloaking capabilities whom I adore for 10 years. I’ve wrote since high school where I was published in some small circulations.
Do you write full-time?
Yes, at least five hours a day I work in some kind of industry capacity.
You’ve met an old friend from high school and you want to pitch your book to him/her in five minutes or less. What would you say?
I’d talk to them, catch up. Ask them about themselves then when they reciprocated the question, I’d say. I’m an author. Which always causes the next logical question, “What have you wrote?” Answer “My recent release Glazier is a paranormal romance, about a soccer mom turned amnesic supernatural spy.” I’m not out to spam people with my books, I want to know people, to appreciate my readers is my ultimate goal.
