Description Edit | History

From website:

Mark started out as a fan of Palladium Books back in 1996, playing Rifts® at a friend's birthday party and later at summer camp. In the year 2000, he started a Rifts® campaign that lasted eight years and a Heroes Unlimited™ campaign for three years before going on hiatus. In that time, the most ambitious writing goal he had was to someday be published in The Rifter®. He never really considered himself a "writer," so the road to his first book had a few curves.

The Crisis of Treachery was the catalyst that drew Mark back to a deepened involvement with Palladium Books. For him, like many others, the fight to help Palladium culminated in the 2006 Open House, where he and his future co-writer, Irvin Jackson, would each inquire about writing a book for the Nightbane® RPG line independent of the other.

Five years later, Mark has written material for Nightbane®, Heroes Unlimited™ and Rifts®, as well as Rifter® contributions in issues 39, 43, 44, 48 and 50, as well as the acclaimed short story "Casualties of War" in the Rifts® Tales of the Chi-Town Burbs™ anthology. His highest profile work to date, however, is the co-written Nightbane® Survival Guide™, the direct result of his collaboration with Irvin Jackson.

These days, Mark continues to work on projects for Nightbane® and has plans for a few more collaborations with fellow freelancers. He is also writing a personal (non-Palladium) novel, with two more waiting in the wings to be written. Meanwhile, Mark is dedicated to obtaining his Master's Degree in clinical psychology from Missouri State University, with the ultimate goal of a Doctorate sometime in the future. Of course, he plans to continue his game-writing and looks forward to a bright future for Palladium Books.
