About the Author

Ted Clarke's passion is history, especially Boston history and that of areas around Boston. He is currently working on his twelfth book, most of which are on local history or figure skating, in which he was a judge and national administrator.

After years of teaching and journalism and three master's degrees, Clarke is "somewhat" retired but still spends a solid part of each day at his writing vocation. "I feel as though I ve never retired, and yet I m doing something I love to do," he says. "I ve always enjoyed using words and telling stories, and here I do both. If you read my writing, I want you to get the story clearly but also enjoy the way it s told."

He has a forthcoming book from The History Press called South of Boston, part of a brace of books called "From Cape to Cape," which is in the works.

He and his wife, Mary, live in the town of Weymouth--south of Boston--where he serves as chair of the historical commission. He has written and narrated five television productions on town history, winning, in 2010, the Massachusetts Historic Commission's award for his program on historic preservation. He also gives frequent talks, which may be arranged through The History Press.

Ted Clarke lives in Weymouth, MA where he served for six years as Chairman of the historic commission. He is currently working on his 20th book, most of them on Boston-area history, with three on figure skating. He also wrote and narrated five television programs on history, one of which won an award from the Massachusetts Historical Commission.

A former teacher, Ted holds three Master’s degrees. He also served as 1st Vice President of the governing body for figure skating in the United States and as President of The Skating Club of Boston. He holds four national rankings in figure skating as an official. His volunteer work extends to his parish church where he serves on the advisory council. Now retired, he writes about four hours a day.

Ted wrote for newspapers and magazines as well. He credits the skills he acquired there as well as in teaching to developing a writing style that is easy to follow, humorous and is based on the ability to tell a story – the most interesting part of history.
