Bio: Ray Clark was first published in 1995, with a 3'000 word essay on fellow writer, Graham Masterton. In 1996, a chance meeting in a London docklands hotel at a horror convention with Matt Williams (and Graham Masterton - himself later in the same evening) eventually led to Ray's first big break: the 1998 publication of Manitou Man: The World of Graham Masterton, nominated for both the World and British Fantasy Awards.
Success followed with a number of short stories in various magazines between 1998 and 2003.
2007 saw the author's first collection of short stories under the title of The Lord of Misrule and Other Stories, released by an American publisher. The following year, the self-publication of a stand-alone horror novel, Calix, a terrifying psychological, rollercoaster ride into the unknown using the Salem Witch Trials as its backdrop.
In 2009, Ray's short story, Promises To Keep made the final shortlist for the best short story award from The Tom Howard Foundation. The publication of Misrule 2: The Next Generation soon followed.

A Twist in the Taste was also published in a collection entitled, Whitby Abbey: Pure Inspiration (available at Amazon and most leading retailers).
His time is now focused on latest crime novel in the Gardener/Reilly series, The Tooth Fairy.
