Author Biography

Obsessed with vampires and haunted houses from a young age, London grew up reading gothic tales featuring romantic and tragic heroes. Wuthering Heights and Dracula are her favorite novels, and although now happily married, she readily confesses that she once moved to England in search of a man who was the perfect amalgamation of Dracula, Hamlet, Heathcliff, and Mr. Rochester. In fact, London considers herself a recovering runaway and also tried living life down under. She graduated from George Mason University with a B.A. in Music and M.F.A in Creative Writing. She’s had an eclectic array of jobs including receptionist, legal secretary, literary assistant, high school English teacher, and freelance editor.

London lives in a Washington, DC suburb with her husband and two greyhounds. She’s happiest when she’s writing novels, reading books, or binge watching her favorite programs like The Vampire Diaries or Being Human over and over again.

Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite

Wildfell by London Clarke is a creepy supernatural tale. Anne Fleming flees after a terrible experience with one of her school professors, and finds herself in London. A man she met on the plane introduced her to Wildfell, a gothic mansion that has rooms for rent. She thinks she can hide there, but it has a creepy history of disappearances and nobody seems to stay long before they disappear into thin air. The owner’s daughter never speaks, but she draws, and she has a book full of sketches of murders. Bain Tierney, an Irish actor, is the only thing holding Anne to the house, but as the current tenants start to disappear, she begins to question her trust in Bain. Just what is Wildfell and who are the people there? There is something strange hovering and Anne wonders if she will ever be able to escape the clutches of Wildfell.

Wildfell by London Clarke turned out to be a cracking good read. I admit to finding it a little slow going at the start, but I soon got into it and found I couldn’t put it down. The story soon picks up pace and moves steadily onwards and upwards, building in suspense until it reaches a thrilling end. I like stories that pull you in and, once I got into this one, it did just that. The characters are an eclectic bunch, each having their own story to tell, and each was developed individually and as part of the main story. This is a chilling tale, full of horrors you don’t even want to dream of and plenty of suspense. For a debut novel, it’s brilliant. I hope to read more from London Clarke in the future.
