Bruce Clark Reflects on the Process of Writing His First Book Love, Sex, Fleas, God

Love, Sex, Fleas, GodBruce Clark, author of Love, Sex, Fleas, God: Confessions of a stay-at-home dad, was interviewed by The Citizen‘s Bruce Dennill.

Clark spoke about the process of writing the book and what he would do differently next time. He also talked about growing up under Scientology and how this has shaped his feelings towards religion today:

Love Sex Fleas God – some of which is about being a retrenched, stay-at-home dad, some of which is about being raised by a Scientology-obsessed mother and some of which is about a lean period in between there somewhere where he was a hobo – is not the book Bruce Clark planned to write, but it became one of which he’s rightfully proud.

“It stemmed from me being aware that my kids and I were on divergent paths,” he says.

“There are times that you need to impart whatever wisdom you have. I’m 55 and I didn’t want to leave it too late.
