About Me:

Hi!


I'm a writer and a reader, presently living in Nanuet, New York. My novel, The Word Gang, was published by Precipitation Press in December, 2010. The Word Gang is the story of three kids in school who start using big words to be disruptive. If you'd like, you can read a few chapters here: http://www.goodreads.com/story/show/256191-the-word-gang


My short stories have appeared in The Poetry Warrior, Rose & Thorn Journal and three stories were featured in Ancient Paths Literary Magazine in January, 2011. One of these, The Aubade, has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.


Thanks for reading.


All the best, Mark

Mark,

Welcome! Short stories intimidate the hell out of me. I'm making a note to check out the Word Gang. Nice accomplishments, btw. It's nice to see.

I like your 'How I Wrote' tab. That's a nice little extra. Do you intend to start a blog or are you mostly looking for reviewers? Whatever your expectations, I hope you find support in this community.

Cheers,

Ellen
