Mark has been married to his wife Robin since 1992 and together they have four daughters.

He is the Director of Communications for CURE Childhood Cancer.

In his fiction, he strives to weave moral truth and humor into a story that is relevant and engaging. One of the greatest compliments he's ever received came from a woman who said: "thank you for showing me what goes on inside a boy's mind." Not much goes on in there, you can be sure of that.

Since the loss of Kylie, the theme of his writing has

Time heals all wounds… and other lies I’ve been told

When I started basic training at Ft. Leonard Wood in 1987, I was issued a Soldier’s Handbook that was filled with the things I would have to learn, including a section dealt with evaluation and treatment of casualties under fire. This was startling because we were just playing soldier here, right? It even talked about something called a […]

The first half of the book felt very disjointed. I know it was released in a serialized format, so I understand the reason. Finally it settled down into a story filled with the warm and rich characters for which Dickens is famous. I laughed at the fa ...more

Tense

The tension of this book starts immediately and burns throughout. It escalates as two women, who are complete opposites, try to escape their unique situations. Clark has built two sympathetic characters that I rooted for from cover to cover. I w

Okay. I liked it okay. I began thinking it was really excellent and was enjoying the flowery language. I loved a line like: “Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I'm not living.” But it quickly became too much. I ...more

Gave me a good feeling

Amber is a Rockstar! As someone who has endured tragedy, I’m going to admit that Amber’s story made me cry a little. I could sympathize with her plight. We all need her hope and a good haiku every now and then.
