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!

This book was such a good read. Ordinary every day people and real life events. I loved how the book was written. 5 stars+.
