Mark is a proud Western PA native but has lived most of the last twenty years in Vietnam, Malaysia, and Saudi Arabia. His overseas experiences have redefined everything including his palate, his outlook on life, and naturally his writing.

He has written ten novels, including his brand new Forgotten Child Trilogy.

His interests cast a wide net - from politics to literature - to culture and language - to history and religion - making his writing infused with the unexpected as he seeks to tell authentic and engaging stories about people from all walks of life. His writing is straightforward and accessible to all, especially those who enjoy writing injected with doses of culture, history

A Year on Zoom

I finished teaching my final drama class today via Zoom. As I waved goodbye and wished a happy summer to the final stragglers who lived through a year on Zoom, the magnitude of the year hit me. I taught an entire cohort of students and I met them only once in person.

The bizarreness of this year doesn’t have to be explained to anyone. Each person has their own stories of how life has changed and h

Intellectuals and Race by Thomas Sowell
"My go-to criticism of any academic that points out some perceived flaw in the current state of affairs or conduct of any large group of people is cherry-picking examples and evidence. Sowell's entire book is pure examples and evidence, woven together" Read more of this review »
Mark Sasse and 10 other people liked Desiree's review of A Diamond for Her:
A Diamond for Her by Mark W. Sasse
"A charming tale of love, the love of baseball, and the heretofore unnamed and temperamental gods of the game. A story so richly told, you’ll frequently forget its fiction.

Regional railroad magnate and larger-than-life character Raymond Blythe dreams " Read more of this review »

“An unbridled pursuit of justice will never stand on moral pillars but will eventually sink to the same morally-bankrupted motive which caused the need for justice in the first place. At that point, the pursuit becomes nothing but a personal quest to justify one’s own anger and refusal to live life once again. This became the reality of the shell of a man known as Thuy’s father. Thang stood firmly on a collision course with death. Nothing else could satisfy the bitterness. Neighbors, once sympathetic, backed away, frightened that his angst might engulf and destroy”

“But you must understand something. Marriage for a Vietnamese girl like me is much more than just my wants and desires. Family is the most important thing in my life, and I must honor my family, even in marriage. I could never marry you without my father’s blessing.”
Mark W. Sasse, The Reach of the Banyan Tree
