Mark Adair, Author of Mystery / Thriller "The Father's Child"

Mark Adair spent over twenty-five years in the Information Technology world designing and developing complex software systems for clients such as the US Navy, Disney, and Lockheed Martin. One evening, after the latest 14 hour workday in a string of many, he struggled to wind down. Looking for a place to escape, he grabbed his trusty laptop and began writing a suspense story about a guy named John Truman. Several months later he had completed the first draft of his first novel, and realized that he would never be the same.
Recently, he debuted his suspense novel, "The Father's Child", on the Kindle platform.
After living in Southern California, Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, and Colorado, he now makes his home in lovely Northern California. In addition to writing, he enjoys swimming, wine, Oklahoma football, the ocean, friends, and his family...not necessarily in that order.

The Father's Child


Valerie Maarten, Author of Contemporary, Romantic Suspense

Let me introduce myself...

I have been writing ever since I discovered that letters made sounds and a combination of letters made words. It wasn't until recently that I decided to share my work with the public at large.

It's true what people say about writers, "they don't write for fame, fortune and glory...they write for the love of writing and sharing." I'm sure most of my fellow writers know what I'm talking about. I know I'm not the only one that invested in rubbermaid storage bins to store your earlier, written work (before the laptop), just in case you decided to go public.

The only thing I love more than writing, besides the obvious (God, family, life and country), is reading. As you will soon learn, I have an eclectic taste in what I read. There isn't a romance genre that I will pass up. I've recently began reading suspense and paranormal romance and have dabbled in the vampire series, once in a while.

But one day, I'm going to reach in my storage bin and dust off that masterpiece I've been working on.

Until then...
