I'm ready for a picnic!
Okay, it's the middle of May. In some parts of the country, winter is long gone and thoughts are turning to spring. Yesterday the temperatures here in West Michigan were stuck in the forties, with strong gusty winds and the...

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.
