About Me

Born in an era in which good and thought-provoking literature is seldom found, Mark has begun to attempt to create a fresh look at writing style. Armed with the boundary-breaking forms of Joyce, Miller, Kerouac, and other writers, he is creating an interesting and raw hybrid, to be demonstrated in all its controversial glory in his current novel. Though young, Mark feels that his work can still have an interesting impact on the literary world with enough patience.
Mark was born in Sacramento, California, and has lived almost all of his life in the small town of Galt, and his writing often uses Galt as the kind of dreary place his characters seek to leave. He was born on April 24, 1991. Other than writing, he enjoys reading, painting, acting, and singing. He hopes to pursue his yet unachieved love for travel, and hopes to travel through Europe and actually see for himself all of the lovely places he describes.
Mark is just beginning to ty his hand at the nonfiction genre with an in-depth look at the history of the clans of Scotland. He has written a significant amount of poetry based on life experiences as well as historical, mythological, and politically-motivated poems, and is in the process of trying to get his poems published.
Though often called insane or twisted for his technique and content in fiction, Mark is undeterred in pursuit of a new and radical style, and, as he often says,
"If you hate my writing, don't blame me, blame my mind. My mind and I work independently of each other, so only one of us is usually in trouble at one given time."

Your comments on "I could cry" were without a doubt the hightlight of my week. Its been a rough one, but even if it were a great one I would say so. I appreciate the respect you give to my talents as a writer. It means an incredible lot.

Thanks for the review of "I have a need for tears". I agree with you on the variety of words. I tried to find a synonym for chest but in the end I was most comfortable with chest cavity. I appreciate your suggetions on the bettering the flow of my work. I always take suggestions for revision into consideration, and often I implement them. We all have times when the right words escape us. And thank you ever so much for quoting Salinger, I love his style and his work.

thanks for reviewing "Leave My Heart". I have to tell you that I am not 100% happy with the stanza you pointed out. You ever get those mental blocks where you just can't fit something to your liking so you end up going with something so-so? If you have any suggestions on a revise I am up for it. I just haven't had the time to think it through. I appreciate the honesty in your review.
