Lucinda E Clarke was born in Dublin, dragged up in the west of England, finished off in Liverpool dockland area in the United Kingdom.
She has lived in eight different countries mostly in Africa, and descended from great wealth to poverty and part way back up again. Qualifying as a teacher, she fell into the media by chance, broadcasting live on Radio Libya, on one occasion with a bayonet resting on her shoulder. A few years later she found herself writing for radio and television.
She began producing and directing and set up and ran her own video production company making programmes for TV, corporate companies and educational institutions.
During her time she also ran the worst riding school in the world, bred small animals for pet shops and Cairn Terrier puppies, sewed gigantic teddy bears and worked on radio and television. She wrote for just about any medium including mayoral speeches, magazines, a newspaper column, advertisements and informational leaflets and brochures. She had two education books published by Heinemann and McMillan but could not afford to sign a long-term contract and wait for royalties - the media paid at the end of each month.
She retired to Spain in 2008 and began writing books, with eight self-published to date. Five of them have been #1 in genre on Amazon in both the UK and the USA and Canada.
