Hi, I’m Bruce Clarke. I’m 44 years old, live in Melbourne, Australia and have embarked on a second career as a freelance writer. My main career as Finance Manager for Moonee Valley Racing Club is what pays the bills. I am married to the lovely Lisa (Wakes), and have two great kids from my first marriage – Rebekah (15) and Tim (13). My interests include sports, travel, writing, music, movies and cooking. I’ve spent several stints living abroad – London, Papua New Guinea and New Zealand – and still have many friends living in those countries. My Kiwi friends are particularly communicative when one of their sporting teams has a rare victory over Australia.
Last year I enrolled in a Professional Writing and Editing course at CAE. My writing goal was to have some of my pieces published and I was fortunate enough to achieve this with some of the pieces I wrote for my classes.
The My Writing tab includes links to some samples of my published writing. Hopefully I will continue to add to this brag book over the next few years.
My other big interest at the moment is a part-ownership of a lovely racehorse called Tarpins. He had his first win at the end of 2007 and we are hoping for big things from him in 2008.
The main part of my blog, with my (sometimes) daily postings, is over here.
