Thank You

Mark Adam Thomas was born in Sacramento, California and lives there still. In high school, he was forced to read The Hobbit, and fell in love with fantasy fiction. Some may say that to this day he still dreams of illusive magic rings and knows the value of home and a proper meal.  When not voicing characters with friends as they roll dice and slay imaginary dragons, Mark earned a degree in Theatre from California State University, Sacramento, where he honed his character acting skills and learned to build little models and design worlds for the stage.  
A personal setback and the end of a failed marriage opened the doors for many other endeavors. He still held dear his gaming friends, and to this day runs a 25 year campaign set in a world of his own design. It was the role-playing (and the fantasizing), that set his mind on the path to writing. Voraciously devouring as many books on writing as possible, Mark used his love of literature and began building a fantasy world unlike any he’d read before. 
As was his habit, one day during the summer of 2006, Mark was in a small bookstore in Nevada City perusing the writing section while on a day trip, and he discovered a little book called No Plot, No Problem by Chris Baty (the founder of National Novel Writing Month).  That November he wrote his first 50,000 words, and one atrocious novel. 
That NaNo novel, Return to Turtle Cove, remains on his hard drive in second draft form. So do seven other drafts, begun in November, which remain in various stages of completion. In the first quarter of 2020, health willing, will see the fruition of the final revision of Kestrel Creed and the Febrile Felon, a historical/supernatural adventure/horror novel.
