He enjoys thriller/suspense and desires to create a sense of fear in his reader while also imparting something lasting and of value. Mark has won an Honorable Mention Virginia Tech Literary Award for Fiction with his story "Cold Stairs".
Mark enjoys shooting, hiking, driving, coin collecting, reading, movies, and of course writing. He prefers to live somewhere with mountains and forests. He is also an avid typewriter collector and uses antique machines for a lot of his draft-writing.read more
