About Mark Elswick

Mark Elswick has been a teacher, tutor, sportswriter, college professor, and author. Despite overcoming a life-threatening auto accident in 1992, perseverance and dedication kept him in the writing game. The title of “author” didn’t come until late-2011 when Modern History Press (MHP) published his first book, “Padman,” a collection of 13 shorts stories. Afterward, he ventured onto the independent scene. That two-year chapter of his writing career also saw months of podcast hosting and public speaking while he was self-publishing three novels and some short stories. Elswick recently returned to MHP and his first biography is currently in the works.

This is overblown and silly. Reads like a goofy creative writing assignment.

Okay, this was the second book I picked up from Mark Elswick. I made the mistake of reading it in bed, and I thought my husband was going to smack me. I finally had to get up and move to the living room. I have a teen girl and have sent her father to the store for these. Now when I look at him I can only laugh wondering if he felt this same way. Mark has a knack for capturing the uncomfortable and making it hilarious. One of my new favorite authors.
