Mark Payden


Mark Payden was born March 23, 1964 in Bedford, Ohio. As a kid, he was mischievous to his core, a plotter, a thinker, a builder, and schemer. Adventurous and resourceful, he got into one impossible jam after another, some he escaped and some, well, he did not.

Mark spent his first fifteen years growing up in the small Ohio town of Stow then moved to the suburbs of Chicago to finish the job. While still in his teens, he discovered his love of reading. It started with Greek mythology, then the escapism of action and suspense. He devoured every novel he got his hands on and dreamed of a day when he would write one himself.

These days, Mark splits his time between his home in Northeast Ohio and his work in the mountains of Pennsylvania. He’s still living the adventure of his life, with wife, Lisa, son, Marcus, and daughter, Madalyn by his side
