R.A. CLARKE (Pseudonym)

When not writing children's literature, Rachael Clarke enjoys writing short stories in all kinds of genres, including dark fiction, and horror. So, to keep things simple (less confusing) for her younger readership, she publishes her short fiction under the pen name R.A. Clarke.

R.A. Clarke also has a dedicated Facebook page for fans of her short fiction.

You're invited (and very welcome) to join the community!
