What inspired your start in writing?
My children inspired me to start writing. I’ve always had a passion for drawing but it wasn’t until I had my own children that I wanted to add words to the images I created. Thus inspiring me to write and draw relatable stories to share with other families like my own.
When did you realize you had a passion for sharing stories for kids?
I realized I had a passion for sharing stories for kids three years ago when I wrote my first children’s book Anthony: A Day Of Toys. The creative process took over! Just being able to create and bring my writing to life was the most unexplainable feeling. I can now encourage, influence, and teach young children through my stories.
What message do you hope children take away from your books?
Have fun and let your imagination take over. Enjoy being a kid and spend time making memories with your families.
Where do you hope to see your work in the next 3-5 years?
I would like to see my work spread to libraries, bookstores, and schools all over the world.
What is next for R.L. Clark?
More stories, more books, more writing. I plan on writing and creating more stories until I can no longer do so. Check out my next book “Anthony: Fights The Covid”; it will be available online on Amazon.
What is your definition of a pretty woman who hustles?
A pretty woman who hustles makes an effort towards her goals and aspirations despite the obstacles given to her. She makes a way out of no way. She knows she can’t give up and pushes herself to the limits giving her all in everything she does. A pretty woman who hustles takes the good with the bad and she knows if she falls the only option is to get back up and try again. A pretty woman who hustles is confident and she isn’t afraid to help and encourages others to go after their dreams too.
