They both asked if I was joking, multiple times, then my mother […]

    Read the first chapter of Parched!

Hello, welcome to my site!

Your internet travels have brought you to the official site for me, Georgia Clark. I'm an author living in Brooklyn, New York.

Have a look around, read some of my words, and feel free to drop me a line.
