Hi everyone! My name's Clarke. Well, that's not my real name. Just think of it as my secret super-heroine identity. I'm a big city single mom by day, a Pepsi-fueled fiction writer by night and I reside in the Midwestern United States  Encouraged by my family and inspired by a love of fiction, I decided to further my aspirations in a new way. 

What I am seeking is a collaboration with fiction enthusiasts like you. With a strong community alongside me, I can keep my website going, continue to blog about my writing process and finish my novella word by word, page by page to its completion. Now, you may be wondering, what is my novel about? Keep reading to find out.

Ice Cream Castles
ICE CREAM CASTLES is a May-December romance that explores grief, understanding, and acceptance. When uptight Eli crosses paths with world-weary Nyomi, culture clash ensues. After a series of strained encounters, the pair later discovers that what they share in common outweighs their differences.
