Clark is a real example of redemption and renewal. Growing up penniless in the South, Bri learned street smarts while caring for her brother in a broken home. She watched her mother work several jobs to care for their small family. Once her brother could fend for himself, Bri moved on to a series of bad choices including leaving school and living on her own. Rebelliousness was a strong understatement to describe those formative years. As a teenager, her wakeup call came from a fight using brass knuckles and a judge that gave her a choice of shaping up or spending time in jail. She took that opportunity and found a way to move up from the streets. She ended up co-owning an extremely successful construction business. She lived the high life until the real estate crash when she lost everything. She moved west and found herself living with her husband and 4 kids in a 900 square foot apartment. She now fills her time, writing, blogging, leading a group of frugal shoppers, reviewing, social marketing and sharing her southern culture. Her unique background gives her writing a raw sensibility. She understands what it takes to overcome life’s obstacles. She often tells friends, “I can do poor. I’m good at poor. It’s prosperity that I’m not used to.” Bri and her husband Chris live in Boise, Idaho (US). Bri is known as the Belle of Boise for her true southern accent, bold demeanor and hospitable nature.
Bri’s favorite genre is paranormal romance, but she also enjoys reviewing contemporary romance, historical romance, chick-lit, erotica (normal), romantic suspense, mystery, general fiction, young adult, sci-fi / fantasy, and non-fiction titles. She loves both ebook (preferably PRC files) and print format when reviewing. Her favorite book is Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder.
