Short biography
After having spent eight years in a Vatican seminary and coming out as a gay man, Mark Tedesco sought to make sense of the different phases of his life without rejecting any of them.

In his first book “That Undeniable Longing: My Road to and from the Priesthood”, Mark invites the reader into his memoir of his life in Rome and gives a rare inside view into seminary life. But the real theme of his book is the struggle to unite the human with the divine in searching for happiness and fulfillment.

Tedesco’s book of poetry “Loving, Hoping, Believing: Poetry to Live by” is a collection of simple but powerful poems which express the love possible between two men, the sense of loss and the faith in something beyond. A very moving work.

Mark Tedesco’s latest book is a historical novel set in the ancient world. “I am John, I am Paul: A Story of Two Soldiers in Ancient Rome” is a true adventure story in 4th century Rome of two soldiers, their bond to one another, and their belief. Fox News has described this book as: “…An unbelievable marriage of fact and fiction that will leave you applauding or appalled but never bored or indifferent. A must read!”
