Mark Smith

Biography

Mark Smith lives in a small town in the Midwest and has enjoyed the creative outlet of writing since a young age. Sir Nathan and the Quest for Queen Gobbledeegook was originally written as a silly romp through a land of adventure for the author's young nieces and nephews. Now it has been rewritten and edited for a general release, aimed at other children like the author's 10 year old son and for those young at heart.

Sir Nathan and the Troublesome Task and Sir Nathan and the Clammy Calamity are the 2nd and 3rd book in the author's Somewhat Silly Story series.

All three books are fantasy adventures, written using what the author likes to refer to as "absurd humor". Inspired by authors like Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, Mark Simon Smith hopes to recreate the same giggling experience for younger readers in the hopes of encouraging them to read.

    A fanciful story filled with colorful images, it reminds me of the stories of Greek mythology read as a child in that there always seems to be slightly more meaning to the words than I immediately grasp. A bright, vivid tale!
