Welcome to the Adventure

Welcome to my blog! My name is Mark, and I am an independent Canadian author. I have two passions: adventure and writing. A number of years ago, I decided to marry the pair.


The result was my first book, Vanished, in 2016. I’m not satisfied with just one, I’m currently working on my second novel and will release more details as the finish line draws closer. My sole focus is to create realistic, thought-provoking fiction that both entertains and inspires. Let me take you on an adventure without leaving the armchair! Words are powerful! If mine convince you that you’re flying, instead of riding the bus, then it’s mission accomplished!

The stories are fictional, but most of the facts are real. This can only be accomplished through on and offline research. That’s one major part of writing that I love, I get to learn so much!

If you write or read about adventure, why not live it?  Adventure awaits! Whether it’s hurtling down a raging river on a board, negotiating an icy mogul, riding a difficult mountain bike trail, or spending time with my family, I’m up for it.

A little more about me: I was born and raised on a farm near Brockville, Ontario. My childhood consisted of chores, riding horses, snowmobile races across open fields, fishing trips, and many other outdoor adventures.  As a young adult, I moved to a larger urban area that introduced this country boy to life in the big city. After a short stint as a private investigator, I moved into the role of Correctional Officer, working at both Millhaven Institution and Kingston Penitentiary, until it closed.

I want this blog to become interactive with readers and bloggers. I plan to post some tips and tricks to professional writing, some interesting facts, short pieces of inspiration and games/quizzes.

So, Welcome to the Adventure, it’s going to be a great one!
