I am the first to admit that my abilities with technology are limited.  When I started writing, I had an electric typewriter that seemed to fit the bill. I would crank out my efforts  and could see some immediate gratificatio...

Recently I was at a writer's workshop and one of the group was fidgeting.  When asked what was troubling her, she admitted that she thought writing was too hard and she was going to give it up. Now this is a mixed group with ...

The memoir writer you describe might like personapaper.com or bubblews.com for posting short prose pieces until she is ready to gather them into a book.

Story
Tagline
As a writer, there is nothing like a well told story.
Introduction

Yes, my name really is Mark Love. I am a Michigan native, who up until recently lived in the Metro Detroit area, where crime and corruption always seem to be at the top of everyone's news. So there's always the chance to find something that can trigger a story idea and enough interesting characters to jump start your imagination.

While I have worked in many industries and career paths over the years, one of my passions has always been writing. I was even able to parlay that passion for a while, working as a freelance reporter for a couple of newspapers in the Detroit area. Writing features and hard news helped me hone my talents. But while newspaper worked was interesting and paid a few bills, it was a far cry from the fiction writing that I enjoy the most.

I've always been drawn to mysteries and thrillers, the kind of stories that have a fast pace, that keep you moving and keep you guessing as to what's going to take place next. Mix those in with some elements of crime, perhaps a glimpse of the seedier side and you've got me. So it's always been one of my goals to write stories like that.

Bragging rights
I put myself through college and grad school, have worked a variety of jobs, raised a family with two great sons and so far have been lucky enough to publish 4 novels. I'm diligently working on the next one and have ideas for more. It's every writer's goal to get their stories out there.
