Will Clarke (born August 13, 1970) is an American novelist who is the author of Lord Vishnu's Love Handles: A Spy Novel (sort of), The Worthy: A Ghost's Story, and The Neon Palm of Madame Melançon.

A native of Shreveport, Louisiana, Clarke originally self-published his first two books via the Internet and independent books stores like Book Soup in Los Angeles, BookPeople in Austin, and Elliott Bay Book Company in Seattle. Clarke's books eventually became underground hits in the early part of the 2000s. He later republished the books in hardback with Simon & Schuster and sold the movie rights to Hollywood. Both books have been selected as The New York Times Editors' Choice while Clarke was named the "Hot Pop Prophet" by Rolling Stone magazine in 2006. He is also the author of 'the controversial essay, "How to Kill A Boy That Nobody Likes" which was published in the Free Press Anthology, When I Was a Loser: True Stories of (Barely) Surviving High School.

Will Clarke is known for using the supernatural (a psychic dot-com millionaire and the ghost of a dead frat boy) to trick the cynical eye into seeing the madness of the mundane.
