Welcome to Mark’s HOME page! This site is devoted to the exciting stories that Mark is sharing. He hopes you have an adventurous read!
I use my experiences and actual cases to inspire my mystery novels, which have won me two Runner Up Whodunit Awards. I was a military police officer for the U.S. Marine Corps and helped several local departments such as the Hiroshima International Criminal Investigation Division with community policing. I also worked for the Center for Domestic Preparedness, a training facility run by Homeland Security where first responders (police officers, fire fighters, health care workers, etc.) learn how to handle natural disasters terrorists attacks, and mass casualty incidents. I lived and worked in Japan for 25 years teaching English at Japanese universities, and for the last ten years teaching criminal justice classes for Central Texas College at satellite campuses on American bases in Japan. I also did free-lance writing for 25 years and had more than 500 articles published. I currently work as a technical editor for the U.S. Air Force. I hope my experiences and insights will prove useful to all of my readers.
