Check out Mark's blog at Goodreads:
Mark’s life took a sharp turn when he was downsized from a corporate attorney job he'd held for nearly 15 years. Instead of sending out his resume, however, he decided it was time to pursue his dream. Selling his house and almost all his belongings, he packed the car and migrated to a town on Florida’s Gulf Coast, setting for the prologue to the first book in the Hero’s Path series, A Hero Dreams.
Six years later, A Hero Dreams was published. This spring, Mark will continue his journey with the second book in the Hero’s Path series, Beyond the Threshold, which follows his protagonist, Ricky Williamson, into adulthood and the days leading up to 9/11.
An avid reader and film buff, Mark is inspired by stories that fill hearts with hope and minds with dreams of possibility. He credits his daily yoga practice with keeping his head clear and his life in balance when writing. Born in Chicago, Mark currently lives in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
