Mark Souza

Biography

I lead a pretty boring life, really. During the day, I build jet aircraft - well, not all by myself - I do my part. At night, I create monsters and new worlds for them to play in. I write fiction - horror mostly, but my interests are broad and I will not be boxed into one genre. The only thing I can promise readers is a commitment to keep them entertained. I hope to become one of your favorite authors.

  • Checking It Twice on Dec. 24, 2010

    "Checking It Twice" is a new Christmas classic building on existing Christmas traditions in a new and creative way. It emphasizes why it's important for children to be nice and pays homage to the elves - the most overlooked aspect of Christmas lore. I highly recommend this charming yet chilling piece. It's a story I plan to recite to my own kids on the holidays.
