About the Author


Welcome! I’m M. L. Clark, writer of speculative fictions.

Canadian by birth, I now call Medellín, Colombia my home.

I trained as an academic, specializing in literary histories of science, but I am now delighted to be living a more balanced life writing, teaching, editing, and translating in a community where I feel better situated to make a meaningful difference.

Current projects include: finishing a first English translation of a Colombian writer’s short stories; developing a series of sci-fi mystery novellas into a full-on series; and writing a speculative history set in the early- to mid-1800s. (I hope to have a splendid announcement about my Dostoevsky-inspired science-fiction novel soon!)

Follow my adventures, literary and otherwise, through:

NB: My Patheos (Humanist) Column, Another White Atheist in Colombia is no more. It became clear earlier this year that the platform would not be ideal to continue to grow global-humanist discourse from here on out. Fortunately, I have another lined up, and I will list it here when it launches!
