Mark Coggins’ work has been nominated for the Shamus and the Barry crime fiction awards and selected for best of the year lists compiled by the San Francisco Chronicle, the Detroit Free Press and Amazon.com, among others. His novels Runoff and The Big Wake-Up won the Next Generation Indie Book Award and the Independent Publisher Book Award (IPPY) respectively, both in the crime fiction category.

His latest novel, NO HARD FEELINGS, will be published by Down & Out Books in late September, 2015.

I’m pleased to report that I will be having a solo exhibition of my work entitled, “Street Scenes Around the World,” at the Viewpoint Photographic Art Center in Sacramento. The show will run from Tuesday, February 7 to Saturday, March 4.


Below is one of the 22 images that will be included in the exhibition.
