Ever since the day he discovered his grandfather's stacks of pulps,comics, and sci-fi and fantasy novels, Mark was fascinated. When he saw his first movie, Star Wars, he was hooked. Stories of adventure and far off worlds thrilled him then and inspire him now. It was this passion for imaginative storytelling that led him to writing and education. In addition to his own writing work, Mark has taught middle school English for the last thirteen years, and is excited to share his stories with his young son, Bryce.
Mark has partnered with Joe King, and the two have formed Gelineau and King, in order to bring an exciting new approach to the genre fiction that inspired him as a kid

Right now, it is the second book featuring Elinor, the main character from A Reaper of Stone. It will likely be out early next year.

But at the same time, we have Rend the Dark coming October 15, and two more novellas to finish out 2015 before that one comes out. Lots of stuff. (less)

Bouncing ideas back and forth between Joe and I usually serves to get things unstuck.

The other solution I like is to think of the most ridiculous thing that your character would do, and force yourself to write that for twenty minutes. Commit to it like someone has a gun to your head. After that twenty minutes, you will either have broken your block or have an amazing outtake for your blog. (less)

Ten years.


 


Ten years since Joe and I last attended San Diego Comic Con.  Ten years and a lifetime of change for each of us.  I lost both my parents, but became a father myself.  We both started our own families and new lives. And oh yeah, we published a lot of novellas.


 


Ten years.  And now, we are going back to San Diego.  Back to Comic Con.  The big difference this time is that our badges say...
