C. Hope Clark was born and reared in the South, from Mississippi to South Carolina with a few stints in Alabama and Georgia. The granddaughter of a Mississippi cotton farmer, Hope holds a B.S. in Agriculture with honors from Clemson University and 25 years’ experience with the U. S. 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.

She frequents many of my signings in my home state of SC. I've been writing since the beginning of time, but I didn't take it seriously until 1998, and by 2003 I was writing full-time. What started as a hobby, became freelance writing, then morphed into crime fiction. I cannot imagine living any other way than as a writer.(less)

I always try to just get it done then edit it into shape, but sometimes it comes flying out like with Murder on Edisto. Sometimes it's horribly difficult and takes forever, like with Tidewater Murder. I say just write it, without thought to how.(less)

After a hectic two weeks of two conferences, 2500 miles of car travel, and intense demand to be on my game in crowds, I sat down to decompress, review my notes, digest the business cards collected, and write about the new revelations I've had about being an authorpreneur.

“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”
Cassandra King
