LITTLE BITTY BIO.
Music and Football have always been my first loves. Played footer for all my School teams and for the West of Kent, and offered trails to go Pro for Brighton F C . I went without school lunches for three months when I was twelve to save the money for my first guitar, now I’ve got to learn how to play it 🙁 I also wanted to be a writer, I could always write stories from an early age and teachers encouraged me to send them up to Magazines, ( Naa ). Also aged twelve I joined a dancing School, ( girls 🙂 and got a Bronze Medal, ( staying ‘out late’ for lessons on a Wed evening:-). But I really wanted to be a Veterinary Surgeon because of my love for animals. I started to learn the names of the ‘ Muscles’, man, this is hard:-( Unfortunately, becoming a teenager brought out a slightly rebellious side of me, so ended up ‘in the Factory’ 🙁 , still had the guitar, and I was always writing songs, and always checking on ‘ who the songwriter was’ on ‘Hit songs’.
I played in many bands, ( did the Summer season at the Holiday camp gig ). but it didn’t happen for me. As ‘Starvation’ set in, I became an Electrician, got married and got me a family, but If you believe in yourself and you want something enough you never give up trying, maybe with a bit of luck, ‘here I go again’. Lastly, I’ve always been a joker, ( that is what the ‘J’ in Mick J. Clark stands for, ( okay it’s ‘James’ ), so never compromise, be who you are, enjoy who you are, be happy.
My first book came out last year: Message From A Star by Michael J. Clark, Pub by Austin Macauley. (On Kindle and Kobo as well). Happy to say I got great reviews from Kircus and Blue Ink. For me it was the story that is universal, ‘men never growing up’.
Some friendships are written in the stars.
Thirty years after their high school graduation, former best friends, Joe and Chad, accidentally meet again in an Orlando hotel. But there will be nothing accidental about the chain of events which lead the middle-age pair on the run from gangsters, drug dealers and ambitious cops.
Deciding to celebrate their unexpected reunion, Joe and Chad share laughs and nostalgic memories over ice cold beer but soon the two, feeling low about their less than adolescent appearance, decide to visit a shop specializing in making men look ten years younger. Receiving enthusiastic reviews from their families on their ‘renovated’ looks, the two push the boundaries and continue drinking at a club.
Here begins the set-up of the harmless gents and they fall into an ever-widening circle of disasters which ensure the men must test themselves… and their friendship.
Michael J Clark’s novel is a clever mash-up of wistful remembrances of youth and the ultimate road trip. Lurching from one catastrophe to the next, Joe and Chad find about the limits of friendship and themselves.
