Mark T. Sullivan (b. 1958) is an author of thrillers. Born in a Boston suburb, he joined the Peace Corp after college, traveling to West Africa to live with a tribe of Saharan nomads.

Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark T. Sullivan
"Seemed fantastic at first

But I was gradually convinced of the extraordinary tales herein because nothing happens unless someone takes a risk. Not even a murderer is as bad a person as his worst act.

“You know, my young friend, I will be ninety years old next year, and life is still a constant surprise to me. We never know what will happen next, what we will see, and what important person will come into our life, or what important person we will lose. Life is change, constant change, and unless we are lucky enough to find comedy in it, change is nearly always a drama, if not a tragedy. But after everything, and even when the skies turn scarlet and threatening, I still believe that if we are lucky enough to be alive, we must give thanks for the miracle of every moment of every day, no matter how flawed.”
Mark T. Sullivan, Beneath a Scarlet Sky

“How do you find happiness?” Anna paused, then said, “You start by looking right around you for the blessings you have.”
Mark T. Sullivan, Beneath a Scarlet Sky

“The best thing is to grieve for the people you loved and lost, and then welcome and love the new people life puts in front of you.”
Mark T. Sullivan, Beneath a Scarlet Sky
