About this author

C. Hope Clark was born and reared in the South, from Mississippi to South Carolina with a few stints in Alabama and Georgia.

Department of Agriculture to include awards for her management, all of which enable her to talk the talk of Carolina Slade, the protagonist in most of her novels. Her love of writing, however, carried her up the ranks to the ability to retire young, and she left USDA to pen her stories and freelance.

Lowcountry Bribe‘s opening chapter took first place in the Phillip Mangelsdorf Award, third place in Alabama Writer’s Conclave Competition and honorable mention in T...more

" Can't get enough Slade!

After getting to know Carolina Slade in Clark's first two mysteries, I was so excited to see what she'd get up to in this third book! She didn't disappoint. It's a tough contest, but this could be the best Slade book yet. Th... " Read more of this review »

“All southern girls are raised to be nice and polite, can't be anything but, regardless of how meanspirited we might be deep down. The illusion of sweetness, that's all that counts. We don't have to be sincerely sweet, but by God we have to be good at faking it. Southern girls will stab you in the back, same as anyone else, but we'll give you a sugary smile while doing it. -Corrine, "Same Sweet Girls”

Thanks so much, Joanne. I'd LOVE to see this as a movie, and I wholeheartedly agree. Enjoy and remember to leave a review on Amazon!

Joanne Just started Low Country Bribe--pulls you in right away--what a great setting for a movie. I've followed your newsletter for a long time and was happy to watch the progression of writing from rough draft through publication and promotion. More power to you! Hope it's a best seller!
