Times) The Bucket List, both Simon & Schuster, as well as two young adult novels. Georgia is the host/founder of the storytelling night, Generation Women, which invites six generations of women to tell a story on a theme. She is currently developing The Regulars as a TV show for E!, and has a forthcoming picture series with Cub House/Lion Forge, Stacey Tomato is in Charge.

Long story: Georgia Clark is an author, screenwriter, and performer currently living in New York City. Her fourth novel, The Bucket List, came out in summer 2018. Her third novel, The Regulars, was her first adult fiction novel. The Regulars was translated into half a dozen languages and is in development at E!/CBS Studios as a one-hour television show.
Georgia is the host and creator of the New York Times-recommended Generation Women, a monthly storytelling night in Brooklyn, NY. Generation Women invites six women of note from six different generations, 20s through 70s, to share an original story on a theme.
Her first novel, She’s With The Band (Allen & Unwin, 2008), is a Young Adult coming-of-age about a trio of teenagers who start a band. It is based on her own experience "singing" in a "band" called Dead Dead Girls despite having very little musical ability. Her second novel Parched (Holiday House, 2014) is a YA sci-fi dystopia set in a world without water. It was inspired by years of being a scrappy student revolutionary while at the University of Technology, Sydney. Here she completed a Bachelor of Communication (Media Arts & Production) and spent time making short films (such as The Heist) and music videos.
She has a forthcoming picture book series with Cub House/Lion Forge, Stacey Tomato is in Charge, that inspires confidence and leadership skills in girls.
Georgia has received a grant for her fiction and has been selected to attend writer’s residencies in the US and Europe.
She co-wrote the play Pickles & Hargraves, and the Curse of the Tanzanian Glimmerfish with Ryan Williams. This one-hour comic murder mystery follows a debonair mouse detective who solves a murder at the 49th Annual Fish Fanciers Convention. It was selected for a five-show run at the New York International Fringe Festival in 2014.
In Australia, Georgia won a national film and TV pitching competition and wrote for the TV drama Home & Away. She worked as a freelance journalist for over ten years and was published in Cosmo, Bust, In-Style, Daily Life and many more.
Georgia performed improv in New York for seven years and is a former UCB house team member. Georgia is enthusiastically vegetarian, proudly queer, definitely a city-dweller, and a long-time lover and supporter of the arts, including Australia's Erotic Fan Fiction community (of which Eddie Sharp kindly credits her as a co-creator). She loves beach days, group dinners, and her beautiful girlfriend.
