About this author

Jay Clark is the author of Finding Mr. Brightside, which author Jerry Spinelli (Stargirl) calls “one of my favorite YA books ever,” and The Edumacation of Jay Baker, which Booklist praised in a starred review: “The magic lies in the telling." He’s also a random blogger. Surprisingly popular entries like “How to stop hating people in 21 minutes” and “8 tips for posting your best selfie yet!” can be found on his website: jayclarkbooks.com.

When he isn’t writing, Jay enjoys thinking seriously about getting a golden retriever puppy but then having second thoughts about it, playing tennis as if something important is at stake, and complaining about his monthly Starbucks expenses when they’re fully within his control. He lives in Columbus, Ohio.

That being admitted, I’ve found that some ol’-fashioned elementary school freewriting exercises — e.g., blah, blah, blah, I have to keep typing until something intelligent comes out, that is never going to happen, my arm itches, why am I doing this to myself, blah — can really get the creative juices splattering everywhere. It’s useful provided you’re willing to clean up the blahs afterward. (less)
