Mark is a former newspaper reporter from England, and now a prosecutor with the Travis County District Attorney’s Office, in Austin, Texas.
He is the author of five novels in the Hugo Marston series, which are set in Paris, London, and Barcelona. The first, called THE BOOKSELLER, was a Library Journal Debut of the Month, and called “unputdownable” by Oprah.com. The sixth will be published in June of 2015, and his stand-alone psychological thriller, HOLLOW MAN, will be released soon after, in September.
Mark is also the creator of the nationally-recognized true-crime blog ‘D.A. Confidential,’ and has appeared on CBS News‘s 48 Hours and Discovery Channel’s Discovery ID: Cold Blood.
In addition to speaking about his background and his books, Mark will show some photos and video clips. He will also talk about the trials and tribulations of being an author–or, rather, about how lucky he is and how much he loves being an author.
Mark says he encourages questions and interruptions–“much more fun that way.”
