About Mark Neumayer

Mark Neumayer has been soaking up books on mythology almost as long as he has been reading. And that's despite the best efforts of the elementary school librarian to get him to read Dr. Seuss "with the other kids." He reads: omnivorously, near-incessantly, and concurrently - thinking nothing of jumping back and forth between three different books at a time.

Mark wrote prolifically back in high school and even edited the school paper. Afterwards, however, he drifted into the world of TV graphics. He still wrote the occasional commercial, but he concentrated on the graphic side of things, working as an Art Director for two different TV stations and picking up a regional Emmy Award along the way. He's also worked for a textbook publisher, an environmental activist group and run his own freelance design business.

Now he is writing again and quite happy about that. Mark has lived in New York, Florida, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Ohio. He currently lives with his wife Theresa and his son Taliesin in North Carolina, where he is working on the next book in the Valda series.
