My Background

Clark Eide, author

I write books for people who are not satisfied. These are people on a quest…consciously or unconsciously. They are looking for answers that their traditional religions do not provide. Sadly, that is the state of formal religion today – antiquated, rigid, toppling from its own dead weight.

Jean Moreau, the protagonist of the novels in The Abbey Chronicles series is a monk, a man deeply embedded in a traditional religion, who is not satisfied. Through trial and error, love of a woman, and through struggles with his own demons, Jean Moreau comes up with answers and methods, some everyday, some radical, to satisfy the longing in his soul for Truth. I know that people will not view life in the same way after reading these books. The novels are an elucidation…but also an invitation… to join Jean Moreau on his journey, the most important journey in life, the journey to Divine connection and a personal gnosis of All There Is.

 As a onetime entrepreneur and native of the United States, now living in France, my study of things spiritual has taken me around the world – from the USA to London, from France to Australia, and Ireland to India. My encounters and experiences have taught me that spirituality is about one thing only — direct connection to the Divine — as part of, or often independent of, an organized religion. When we make the effort to go within and gain Awareness, the key to this process, we will find that connection and the resulting path to temporal and spiritual contentment.

In my writings, I’ve looked to synthesize what I have learned along the way and to incorporate that into story form and real life drama. Enter the life and times of Jean Moreau. Enjoy the novels and see what you can pull from his experiences.
