Biography

(I am the co-author of A Protocol for Grace. Christine Enking is the primary author. Please check Christine's author page for further information - https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/CMKingmark)

For almost 40 years, Mark's professional career has been one of dedication to the adolescent population. He taught high school English and was a coach and fine arts director for eight years before making a career change to adolescent and family chemical dependency counseling. He was a treatment therapist for 8 years and during that time also worked as a prevention specialist in several school districts. In his capacity as an addictions counselor, Mark established a family education program at a treatment center and was its principal instructor for 5 years. Mark has served as a consultant for several peer-helper training programs and has been the director of the non-profit Partner's Institute since 1989. Mark has also taught and counseled in alternative education for a dozen years and has taught a class on drugs and alcohol at St. Olaf College for the past 20 years. He has addressed thousands of people in workshops and seminars for students, teachers, parents, and professionals across the Upper Midwest and in Canada, and has worked in confidential small group situations with many hundreds of adolescents and adults. He is intimately familiar with the struggles of families and individuals and carries an abiding hope and respect for the ability of the young to survive and eventually thrive. He is the proud father of a son and a daughter and the grandfather of 3 boys. Currently semi-retired, he enjoys golf, photography, woodworking, watching soccer and movies, and is an avid reader.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
Being the co-author of A Protocol for Grace has been a privilege and a burden. I have been working on the book with Christine Enking for many years now and have been impressed with Christine's tenacity and generosity. Christine has done most of the heavy lifting as far as self-publishing goes and I have gotten fully on board as I have looked into Smashwords and their publishing methods.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It's too early to tell as we have just recently begun the process, but we are optimistic and, like most authors, hopeful. I do like the many e-publishing platforms that Smashwords offers and believe that multiple possibilities increase the chances for success.
