Brenda is another of several authors I’ve met through the Central Region Oklahoma Writers or CROW.
Brenda Clark Thomas is the author of fantasy and post-apocalyptic novels and numerous short stories, primarily speculative fiction with a literary bent. The 2020 fiction runner-up of Poets and Writers Maureen Egen Writers Exchange Award, she’s currently seeking representation for a suspense/thriller featuring the NSA. She’s won many first-place prizes at writers’ conferences, and her non-fiction articles have appeared in various journals. She’s this month’s flash fiction horror finalist for Crystal Lake Publishing. The pre-release date for her newest horror novella, THE SURROGATE, is October 31st.
A native Californian, she now lives in south Tulsa, Oklahoma, with her New Yorker husband and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. In another life, she worked on top secret projects for the Army. A member of The Authors Guild, you can find her at www.brendaclarkthomas.com.
In September, she enters an intensive twelve-week writers’ workshop by The Storied Imaginarium. During the workshop, she will produce a rough short story per week with one complete, finalized short story due at the end of class. After that, she plans to work on a 20k novella that had its genesis suggested by Kevin Lucia, editor of Cemetery Dance, after he read one of her newest short stories.
Thank you, Brenda. It’s good to know you.
