Eric Clark

2015-2018

Eric is an author and investigative journalist. He has been a member of the SoA for over 30 years. After all the generous help and support he has received from the Society, he hopes to give something back.

Times are tough for authors. Eric and his wife (Marcelle Bernstein) brought up three children and paid a mortgage with their writing: he believes few could do this today.

His books include five thrillers as well as documentaries on the devious world of diplomats; a comprehensive account of the machinations of the global advertising industry; and an examination of how American marketing and Chinese sweatshops have combined forces to rule the world toy market.

Before fulltime writing, his newspaper appointments included the Daily Mail, The Guardian and The Observer (where he variously headed the investigative unit and served as Home Affairs Editor). His freelance journalism appears in many of the world’s major newspapers.

He is a Fellow of English PEN, and a member of the National Union of Journalists, the Authors Guild and the Mystery Writers Association (both USA) and of the International Thriller Writers organisation.

As a member of the Management Committee, he is always happy to hear from fellow members at: ericclark@clarkwrite.com. See also: ericclark.net
