Richard Clark has written eight middle grade chapter books, one of which, My Best Friend Is a Secret Agent, is currently for sale at all Chapters/Indigo/Coles bookstores (and online) in Canada, published by Indigo Press. Prior to that, it was on the Amazon and iBooks free kids books best-seller lists as an ebook for over three years with over 100,000 downloads and over 50,000 reads on wattpad.com. (Due to the print publication, it has been removed as a free ebook from all retailers, but it is still available on wattpad.com.)
Richard has worked extensively as a screenwriter and story editor, both in Toronto and Los Angeles. A graduate of UCLA and AFI, his credits include writing or story-editing over 150 produced TV scripts for shows broadcast on the Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, BBC, Netflix, CBC, CTV and many other domestic and foreign networks. He's also developed shows for many production companies, written four TV movies for Showtime Networks, optioned several feature screenplays in Los Angeles, and worked as a director and editor. In 2010 he was nominated for both a Gemini Award (Canadian Emmy) and a Writers Guild of Canada Screenwriting Award, and in 2012 another WGC award.
In addition, Richard has taught screenwriting at Humber College and Sheridan College in Toronto, and he wrote Scratch & Sniff, an interactive book app for kids.
Richard lives just outside of Toronto with his wife and their 12-year-old twins... and he's lived to tell the tale.
