Mark Richard Masters was born in Northern California, but his family moved to Oregon when he was very young. After they finally settled down in a very small town, his family fractured. Shortly after that Mark began to write. For many years he would alternate between writing and not. Finally he decided to try to make money off of his hobby.
Mark has appeared in AlienSkin and PurpleVerse.
When did you first start writing?
I started at a young age. No, not 2 or 3, but close. I was about 6 and I wrote and sketched my own comic book, and I have been writing on and off since then.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Most of what I have published so far is electronic Chapbooks, or short stories. But I have been working on a Medieval Style Fantasy that will make novel length.
While I am not a fan of "Gay" stories my complaints as it were with this story is not that. There are some things that distract from the story starting at page 1. If it were not for these I would call this an excellent short story. I would even be tempted to recommend it to others.
I nice collection of non-rhyming micro poems. However that is the problem. All my research says that Haiku are suppose to have a jaxposition between lines 1 and 3. I did not see that in any of these, so I find it hard to view them as Haiku.
