About Mark Wooden

The son of a sharecropper (not really), Mark Wooden has actively pursued the dream of being a Creative since his epic kindergarten work, "Ne-Ne the Vampire Panda.” Though he prefers movies, Mark chose the novel as his creative outlet; they don’t cost anything to write and he is the only person who can slow his progress.

He draws inspiration from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Blade," decades of "Batman" and "X-Men" comic books and conspiracy epics "24" and "The X-Files." He'd be remiss if he didn't also mention the influence of a certain Frank Miller-created assassin named Elektra.
 
Mark mines his two decades of experiences as a video director in live entertainment (concerts and corporate events) to instill humanity into the vampires, demons, werewolves, sorcerers and other creatures of his “Shadowdance” urban fantasy saga. When he's not doing all that he's taking care of his dachshund, Adi (yes, named after a Jedi).
 
“By Virtue Fall: A Song of the Shadowdance" is the first novel in the "Shadowdance" saga. Like it? Be kind and post a review to where ever you purchased a copy. Thanks!

Review by: Lyrical Lit. Publishing on Nov. 16, 2017 :
Great introductory short story. I enjoyed the vivid fight scenes, the gritty characters ,their odd intentions. I really wanted to read more about them, see what was going to come next, and find out how they got to the place they were at in their immortal vampire lives. Where are they going with it all? It's definitely a nice way to wet the palate on this series. Enough so that I went and bought book 1 to continue the story. Can't wait to start. Love stories of strong women warriors, vampires, and immortals. Really interested in where this goes.
