C. Hope Clark

Hope Clark spends her days aiding writers through her FundsforWriters.com website and her evenings writing mysteries, with an emphasis on South Carolina settings. She is author of three mystery series (15 books) set in her home state: Carolina Slade Mysteries, The Edisto Island Mysteries, both award-winning, and most recently The Craven County Mysteries, using the original county history of the state to create a fictional county in contemporary times, right where it used to be. She speaks widely to writers, book clubs, and libraries nationally, and sometimes internationally, about the craft, business, and motivational aspects of writing, in hope of inspiring others to find the thrill in reading and writing. Her website was selected by Writer’s Digest for its 101 Best Websites for Writers for each of the past 21 years. Her writing newsletters reach 25,000 subscribers each Friday. She’s published in Writer’s Digest, The Writer, Writer’s Market, Guide to Literary Agents, Guide to Self-Publishing, SC Wildlife Magazine, and more. Her novels are known up and down coastal SC, with a special interest by the tourists and natives of the Edisto/Lowcountry area. Hope is a member of Mystery Writers of America, Southeastern Writers Association, International Thriller Writers, and MENSA. When she’s not researching Edisto, she’s writing along the banks of Lake Murray.
