Lucinda E. Clarke


From a very early age, Lucinda E Clarke always wanted to write, but was ordered to “get a proper job.” Journalists were required to drink their targets under the table to get a story she was told, and alcohol doesn’t agree with her! So she dutifully trained as a teacher, and has taught in seven different countries – from primary school infants to lecturing adults in Technical College. After suffering a mentally abusive childhood, Lucinda had little defense against the Walter Mitty aspirations of the man she married. They moved from country to country, usually one step ahead of the creditors. Eventually Lucinda found the courage to leave him and began to write and write and write. She graduated from radio, to television and then ran her own video production company, winning over 20 awards along the way. She is now in Spain and writing books (pretending be be retired). She is about to publish her fifth book, a sequel in her series about Amie the young girl she took from the comfort of her English home and dumped into a civil war in Africa. (Amie has yet to forgive her for this).

  8. Ah that’s kind. I’m not sure how or why that name popped into my head, but I do know I googled it to see if there were a couple of hundred other authors with that same name and when I found a showjumper called Lucinda Clarke, I popped an E in the middle. In theory, I should come up top in the SEO! All very scientific these days πŸ™‚

    • Thanks for the link – I’ve downloaded it so will enjoy it. The Badminton area is beautiful. I went to the event as a photographer and then a journalist before I retired because of ill health. I also co-organised a one-day event at the Clarke family estate – Borde Hill Horse Trials; still going despite my absence. And if you are interested, here is a dated but informative interview from when I was an equestrian journalist:

  10. Fascinating reading. Lots in common – horses – video production – freelance writing and experiences!! I too wanted to be a journalist, my grandfather owned a newspaper in China and wrote for Fleet St but I was railroaded into teaching. I desperately wanted to learn to ride but was forced into ballet lessons. But we survived!! I hope your health holds up as best as possible Roland. (And my paternal grandfather was called Roland!)
