About Mark Jacobs

Mark Paul Jacobs lives in lovely Dauphin, Pennsylvania. He enjoys fishing the Canadian north, poker, and annoying his wife. He has authored two novels: How Teddy Roosevelt Slew the last Mighty T-Rex, a Historical Science Fiction tale set in 1914, and the hard science fiction novel: The Yaakmen of Tyrie, a powerful and mysterious tale of bravery, loss, perseverance, betrayal, and redemption. He is also quite proud of his awe-inspiring short story: The Day God Winked and his chilling novelette with the provocative title: The Watchers from within Moments Revealed, an almost universally well reviewed work for which he has written a screenplay suitable for an ‘Outer Limits’ episode. These and several other works are available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Sony, and How Teddy Roosevelt Slew the last Mighty T-Rex and The Yaakmen of Tyrie is available in paperback via Mark is working on a movie screenplay tentatively called Stain which is a gritty murder conspiracy based in Central Pennsylvania similar to the movie ‘Fargo’ or ‘Reservoir Dogs’. Please enjoy his works and don’t be afraid to tell him what you think on his Facebook page, twitter account, or by email. And lastly, please take the time to leave him a review of his work; it doesn’t have to be long or long-winded, but it does make him feel that his hard word has touched someone’s life in some way. You can leave a review wherever his books are available.

Great story and well-written. It made me think about the stories we would make up and tell as kids to scare each other...the type of story that left you wondering if it might have really happened.

This is a wonderful short story that takes place way down south in the early part of the 1800s. Jacobs has an excellent premise, and an intriguing cast of characters. I wish he would consider expanding "An Incident At Walter's Creek" into novel length someday. And if he does, I feel it would be to his advantage to tone down the thick southern dialect. While it may be authentic, I found it frequently got in the way of my enjoyment of the story. I recommend this short story for those who enjoy a fun, quick scare, and intend to read other works by this talented writer.

Nice rhythm to this author's style. The dialogue was real and believable. Great little scare fest to cozy up to on a Halloween weekend. I'd recomment this, especially for the price!

Creepy and entertaining, I'd recommend this short story to anyone looking for a quick read. The boys and their adventures remind me of many of my own childhood antics. The ending leaves you hanging, though, wondering if it is real or not.

I'm not usually a fan of scary horror, but Mark's light touch with the story kept me reading and enjoying this tale.

There’s nothing like a creepy story and inquisitive young boys goading each other to get to the bottom of it! The story telling of Mark Jacobs takes you back in time and puts you in the middle of a dark tale about strange goings on near Walter's Creek that may or may not be true. Vibrant characters, rich descriptions, a few drops of moonshine and a chilling twist make this an exciting and fun read.

Mark Jacobs' short story, "Incident at Walter's Creek," reminds me a little bit of Steven King's "The Body." A group of young boys are telling stories to frighten one another as they creep up on the local "haunted house."

As is always the case with such stories, there is more to the situation than meets the eye.

Jacobs pulls the reader in with dialect, entertaining characters and situations ... and some surprising twists and turns. Nicely done!
