About the Author

“Selby, Master of Mayhem” Clark Selby was born in 1936 in Miami, Oklahoma, and attended school in Kansas and Oklahoma. He and his wife, Karen Serene Selby, live in Springfield, Missouri. He spent almost fifty years in the parking industry. Clark’s work in the parking industry took him to sixty-five countries on six continents. During his years in the parking industry he served as a parking meter serviceman for the City of Hutchinson, Kansas, then was appointed as Director of Parking for the City; Assistant Director of Transportation and Parking for the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa; Parking Consultant with De Leuw Cather & Company, a transportation engineering company in Chicago, as Project Manager for the City of Chicago’s Parking System and a parking study for the Australian Government for the City of Perth, Western Australia. He worked several years for Duncan Industries, manufacturers of Duncan parking meters, as a Sales and Service Engineer; Director of Manufacturing, then was promoted to Vice President of International Sales and, later, to President of the company. As Vice President of International Sales for Duncan Industries, he won the prestigious President of the United States’ Excellence in Exporting Award. This Award is given to only a few companies annually. It requires the company to have an increase in their international sales of at least twenty percent per year for three consecutive years and also make sales into at least three new countries for three straight years. Clark’s last position in the parking industry was President of Worldwide Parking Corporation of Rockville, Maryland. The company operated parking systems for cities, universities and hospitals in Mexico City; Warsaw, Poland; Seoul, Korea; New Orleans; Milwaukee; Rio de Janeiro; and Washington D.C. In 2001, Clark retired to care for his first wife, Patricia, when she became paralyzed from her chest down, and he continued to care for her until she passed away in 2007. During this period, Clark began writing novels as an outlet from his fulltime job as caregiver for Pat. He found he enjoyed telling stories on paper and continued writing after she passed away. Clark and Pat were married when they were 16 years old and were married for fifty-five years and had two sons, Michael and Robert. For several years during the 1990’s and early 2000’s, Clark was listed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in The World, until his retirement in 2001. Clark’s book, “Where’s My Wife?” published by Stratton Press, was selected as the Best Western in the online Book Excellence Award Contest in June 2018. His book won over hundreds of entries from around the world for its high-quality writing, design and market appeal. Clark served in both the Kansas Army and Air Force National Guards for more than six years as a sergeant in radio communications before he began traveling in the parking industry. Clark and his wife Karen spend as much time as possible traveling and exploring places they haven’t been and plan to keep doing it as long as their health allows. Clark has traveled to ninety-two countries during his lifetime. Clark and Karen took a 111-day world cruise to twenty-six countries on six continents on the Princess cruise line in 2017. The highlight of their cruise was a visit to the Taj Mahal in India; it was simply beautiful. He also wrote his tenth novel on this trip called Cruise Ship Murders. Clark loves writing new novels and plans to keep doing it. As he says, “It may not be great writing but I always hope my books tell a good story.”
