Becky Clark is the seventh of eight kids, which explains both her insatiable need for attention and her atrocious table manners. She likes to read funny books so it felt natural to write them too. She surrounds herself with quirky people and pets who end up as characters in her books. Her stout-hearted dog keeps her safe from menacing squirrels, leaves, and deer, but not plastic bags.

I love sliding into The Zone while I'm writing, where the world falls away and the perfect words flow with no effort. And then, when I read those words and they remain perfect long after I've tumbled out of The Zone. That's the best too. And when other people read those words (or, really, any of my words), and tell me I've made them laugh or cry or think or otherwise do what I was trying to get them to do. Also the best. And no matter how many times it happens, there's always that thrill, that shiver of joy, that disbelief, when I open a box and see books with my name on them. The best.(less)

"Julie Maloney's A Matter of Chance is superb, breath taking, and a thrill a minute.
