Mark McClure


Mark David McClure was born and raised in Bay City, Michigan. He began writing in high school when he wrote an elegy for his father’s funeral. He has been an avid reader, soaking in the plethora of worlds found in the works of Patricia Cornwell, Stephen King, Bev Vincent, Stephen J. Spignesi, Brian James Freeman, Sue Grafton, Joseph Payne Brennan and many others. His favorite genre is horror, but he finds himself indulging in an occasional mystery.

Mark has a lot to offer and can’t wait to bring to the masses the enduring literature he has written and is yet to write. Supporting him in this undertaking are his wife and daughter. They have been the sounding board for his work for some time. His growing list of short fiction and poetry includes:
Dear Diary
Time Was Gone
You Stand Ashore

Thankful for the many opportunities in life, Mark wants to share what he has learned in life and what he hopes to learn, as life is an ever-expanding universe within.
