Mark Paul Smith | Author Profile

About the Author

Mark started writing for a newspaper in 1972. It was thirty reporters in a sprawling newsroom, getting yelled at by a curmudgeonly editor chain smoking Camel straights. From writing obituaries as “the death editor,” to covering cops, schools, social services, city government and features, Mark learned that if a man bites a dog, there’s a story.

Mark’s novels are inspired by world travel, rock and roll lifestyle and courtroom drama. They’re about real people; not super heroes, violence-porn and body counts. Mark says that facing grief, betrayal and shattered dreams are enough for any character to handle, and that fortunately, love and kindness can become their own rewards.
