Mark Zero has been a gourmet ice cream manufacturer, magazine editor, funeral home attendant, German instructor, photographer, music agent, film archivist, farm laborer and patient care technician to the physically and mentally disabled. He has lived in many places throughout the United States and in Paris, France; Leipzig, East Germany; Heidelberg, West Germany; and Santa Elena, Costa Rica.
In his twenties, Mark wrote and performed comedy in clubs and theaters around Southern Arizona. He was half of the comedy duo Blind Rage and Nick, who toured New Mexico, Arizona and Southern California before deciding that Vaudeville was, indeed, dead. Mark thinks fondly of the time his one-act play "Lost in the Promised Land" was staged by the Happy Accidents Theater Troupe in Tucson, and he still juggles and plays the ukulele out of nostalgia.
Mark's novels The French Art of Stealing, Blood & Chocolate and The Scarlet Dove are available online and at booksellers everywhere.
