Separated from her peers by her work experience, dedication, and determination, Sue J. Clark has spent the past four decades building an expansive and impressive resume. She began her career as a writer, director, and traffic manager in television and as a continuity director in radio, and has steadily progressed from there. Over the course of her professional journey, Ms. Clark has co-owned two newspapers, has had numerous articles and poetry pieces published in newspapers, magazines, anthologies and journals, and served as the director of university relations at the University of California, San Francisco. Furthermore, she has taught weekly poetry and fiction classes around California, and a variety of writing-related classes at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Graduate School.
Some of Ms. Clark’s most notable publications include her 2005 book, “Is Anybody Listening? – A True Story About the POW/MIAs in the Vietnam War,” her 2011 ghostwritten book, “Broken in II: A Soldier’s Story of Surviving World War II and PTSD,” and her 2014 book, “Tell Them I Loved Life – Brian’s Story.” She has received a number of accolades for her work, but considers her greatest achievement to be the national award she won from Sierra Dreams Press for “Is Anybody Listening?”
Ms. Clark currently utilizes her talents through SJ Clark Literary Specialties, LLC, where she acts as a writer, editor, ghostwriter, poet, memoirist, writing instructor, tutor, agent, consultant, and book doctor. In her role, she edits and critiques manuscripts, reviews materials for businesses, and teaches weekly poetry classes and advanced fiction classes in Lincoln, California and through the Sierra College emeritus program in Rocklin, California.
