David Clarke was born in Oldham Lancashire, in 1949. He was educated and trained as a lecturer, at Wolverhampton Polytechnic, and graduated with a Certificate in Education that was awarded by Birmingham University, in 1978. However his earlier life had been rather different. He and his brother Michael were both convicted criminals and were sent to prison for malicious wounding and carrying a fire arm without a license. They grew up in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, during the 60’s, and they were MOD’s and they became criminals. They were sentence to prison for malicious wounding and carrying a fire arm without a license. On the 16th January 1970, David had a bad trip on LSD, during which time he called out to God to help him and Jesus spoke to him. He turned from crime to Christ over night, he learned to read to educate himself and went on to Higher Education and for the next 14 years read the bible, various classical Christian literature and joined the Bierton Strict and Particular Baptists. He studied hard and became not only a lecturer in electronics but also became the church secretary, was called by the Lord and sent by the church to preach. The Bierton Church was a Gospel Standard listed cause. Michael, David's brother was unaffected by David’s conversion and continued his flamboyant style. In 1995, David got news of his brothers arrest and later imprisonment in the Philippines. It was then David felt compelled to write their story. When David got news of his brothers conversion from crime to Christ, in 1999, which was 5 years into his 16 year prison sentence he published their story in, Converted on LSD Trip. Michael too had become a Christian, as a result of reading C.S. Lewis book, Mere Christianity.
