"I have always been committed to the truth and written it even in the midst of controversy. I have been held hostage by words all my life. I started writing short stories when I was nine years old. My first newspaper article appeared in the Philadelphia Bulletin when I was 13. I was editor-in-chief of the Bristol High School 1952 yearbook and was news editor of the student newspaper. As a journalist I was known as an aggressive reporter and a careful editor, always seeking the truth and explaining it fairly. As a writer I believe that is my responsibility as well as my greatest challenge. Words matter."
-Kathryn Finegan Clark
