Thursday Twitter Takeover: Clark Burbidge

Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week young adult author Clark Burbidge will be taking over our Twitter account.

Clark Burbidge was born and raised in the high mountain valleys of the Rockies. He earned an MBA from the University of Southern California and a BS from the University of Utah. Clark and his wife, Leah, live near Salt Lake City, Utah, where they enjoy their blended family of ten children and six grandchildren. His award-winning works include the Giants in the Land trilogy, A Piece of Silver: A Story of Christ and the StarPassage series.

In the third StarPassage book, Honor and Mercy, teenagers Tim and Martie Carson return with new friends Mike and Ronnie, who are transported by the ancient star relic to experience major events in history: a desperate flight on a WWII bomber introduces them to extraordinary acts of bravery and loyalty; a colony of humble friars acting as first responders during the deadly Black Plague teaches selflessness; getting trapped in the middle of a violent battle at Gettysburg, the Black Hole of Calcutta and the biblical village of Bethany with the dangerous Trackers in hot pursuit shows the spirit of never giving up hope.

To follow along with this week’s Twitter takeover, follow our Twitter account @YoungEntmag and follow the hashtag #YAAUTHORTAKEOVER. For YEM’s exclusive interview with Clark, click here.
