John Clark is a British writer and film-maker based in Berlin, Germany.

His work has ranged from tv production and independent film, to creating broadcast services and writing for a wide range of media and genres.

"I am especially interested in expressing ideas at their appropriate scale. Something that may be explored perfectly as a short poem might well be a disaster as the basis for an epic novel. Conversely, big themes really do need a large canvas and trying to cram too many ideas into a short story, or a report can be disastrous. My novels reflect that kind of approach. They have a degree of detail and description, which would never be appropriate in a script for a movie or tv drama."

My blog often covers material which has nothing to do
