grew up on the north shore of Lake Tahoe in Incline Village, NV, a very
small town that blessed him with enough quirky characters to populate a lifetime of stories.
He left the slopes of Tahoe for
the shores of the Pacific, attending college at the University of San
Diego. After graduation, he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where he
worked at several fledgeling dot-coms and one globally-dominating video
game company. He moved back to Northern
Nevada several years ago where he worked in the newspaper business until he began
teaching Composition, Fiction and Creative Writing at Truckee Meadows
Community College and Sierra Nevada College.
Mark's first collection of short stories Grind
, published by Torrey House Press is now available at your local independent bookstore and online.
