Losing Your Child During #Divorce at #DadChat

Category: #DadChat

Parents fighting in front of child

Divorce sucks. Anyone that has gone through a divorce knows this is true. I’ve heard fairy tales of “nice” divorces but I’ve never known of one, ESPECIALLY where kids are involved. I call Family Courts – ANTI-FAMILY COURTS and I call so-called family lawyers – ANTI-FAMILY LAWYERS and sometimes names inappropriate for a family-oriented website. But, NOTHING is worse than when the court, the lawyers, or the warring spouses do EXACTLY what they all know is EXACTLY the wrong thing to do and put the children in the middle.

This Thursday, June 5 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET we are going to TAKE ON this tough issue with a man who has lived it, Marc Clark and his associate Alana Seal. We will be giving away TWO COPIES of Marc’s best-selling book, The Princess Fables, at this week’s #DadChat.

Author of Princess Fables

Award winning author Marc Clark is a New York City resident. Marc started Seven C’s Productions in 1995 as a freelance Writer/Producer for HBO and Cinemax. He went on to produce over 2,000 promos, trailers, entertainment news pieces, long form interstitials, marketing tapes and presentations for Food Network, Destination America, Cooking Channel, Lifetime, USA Network and Showtime, winning 2 Gold Mark and a Silver Mark Award for his work.

Over the years Marc has conducted over 500 entertainment interviews, running the gamut from Kindergarteners to Michael Strahan to Larry David. He shot, produced and directed the HBO Family series “30 X 30 Kid Flicks” and has been entrusted with creating several family videos for likes of the LeFrak family and the Seinfelds. He launched the TWC on Demand Barker and he created and produced all of the promotion for the first national PPV and Video On Demand platform in China, YOU On Demand.

Marc’s latest production is his award winning children’s book, The Princess Fables, the recipient of 3 Honorable Mentions from the 2014 Los Angeles, San Francisco and Paris Book Festivals. The paperback version of his book is now an Amazon Bestseller.
He was inspired to write the book when his little girl was having difficulties getting up to go to school. When he would wake her each morning, whatever she would say to get out of going became the subject for a PRINCESS FABLE.

He is currently at work on The Royal Fables, a collection of stories inspired by the patients of Texas Children’s Hospital benefiting their Cancer Centers. The Princess Fables 2 is expected to be published Summer 2015.
