Mark R. Lowery
The son of a preacher who seemingly never unpacked his bags, Mark lived in five states before reaching high school. It was during those many upheavals that he sought solace in reading and writing.
The public library became and remains one of his favorite places. After graduating with a communications degree from Rowan University in New Jersey, he took a series of jobs writing and editing for magazines and newspapers, including the Detroit Free Press, New York Newsday and the Cleveland Plain Dealer. His novel Wilfred's Dream (Black Opal Books) was a National Indie Excellence Awards finalist.
Currently, Mark resides in Shaker Heights, Ohio.
