John Thomas Clark
June 5, 2011
A retired NYC elementary school teacher, John Thomas Clark lives in Scarsdale, NY with his wife Ginny, his daughter Chris, his son John and Lex, his black Lab service dog. Currently, over 130 of his poems are appearing in OCEAN, The Recorder, Calliope, The Barefoot Muse, The Healing Muse, Byline, and some forty other journals. The Joy of Lex: Life with a Service Dog, his light-hearted romp of fifty-six poems and fifty-six accompanying color photographs recounting life with Lex — with an introduction written by best-selling author Dean Koontz and a back-cover testimonial by world-renowned poet Derek Mahon — was published on July 11, 2009. His 500-page novel of fifth-century Ireland entitled The Chronicles of Saint Patrick: The Captivity will be published next year.
