Jack Clark came to writing late after spending his life creating three different careers. His first career was as a Stage Carpenter, Stage Manager, Production Manager and Set Designer in some of the UK’s most prestigious theatres, at different times designing sets, building them in the workshops and running the performances.
Using the skills he learned in production, he began a new career in property development, buying houses, turning them around into affordable homes for families, a business he continues to run.
Twenty years ago he was asked if he could teach the technical skills he learned in the British Theatre Industry to a new generation of learners and so began his third career – as a teacher.

Creativity comes by hammering the keyboard. The writing may not flow very easily but the words do come and the ideas flow once you have your mind set on the story and you stick at it.
Get the first sentence down. Where is the character? What is he/she feeling? Why is the stranger holding a gun on them?
After that, keep typing/writing. The words do come. Just don't procrastinate. (my big failing) Sit down and write.(less)

“From Tears of Abraham: Genesis

For an organisation with its fearsome reputation, most people with only a superficial knowledge of its myriad and deadly operations refer to it simply and erroneously as “Mossad”. Those in the know cringe at the reference and mentally correct the name to “The Mossad” for the organisation’s full name is"The Institute for Intelligence and Special Operations"or in Hebrew,“Ha Mossad leModiʿin uleTafkidim Meyuḥadim”, referred to by insiders simply as ‘The Institute’ or ‘The Mossad’ with the definite article always included.”

“From twelve stories up it was easy to be fooled by the city's rain-swept beauty, by the millions of lights twinkling in the night. But all I had to do was turn my head to see the truth: a child-whore asleep in her hospital bed. It could rain forever and the city would never be clean.”
Jack Clark, Nobody's Angel
