R. M. Clark, Author of The Secret at Haney Field: A Baseball Mystery
Robert (R. M.) Clark is the author of our middle-grade novel The Secret at Haney Field: A Baseball Mystery.
Robert Clark spent nineteen years as a baseball coach—from T-ball to American Legion and most levels in between. It was from his typical place in the third-base coach's box that he imagined a baseball mystery told from the viewpoint of a bat girl, which developed into his middle-grade novel, The Secret at Haney Field: A Baseball Mystery.
After graduating from the University of Idaho with a Computer Science degree, Robert moved from the Gem State to northeastern Alberta to Southern California before settling into a cozy town in Southeastern Massachusetts, where he lives today with his wife and two sons.
Robert is also the author of the adult thriller Center Point and another middle-grade mystery, Dizzy Miss Lizzie.

"A well-written Disney-like story. . . . The characters are well-drawn and likable, and Clark obviously knows baseball. . . . A home run . . ." —Kirkus Reviews
