Mark Kingsley


Mark is now retired after an adventurous career in cartography that has taken him to all but four of the United States and to more than twenty foreign countries. In the early years he learned the practical skills of geodetic surveying, aerial photography, and making high precision measurements from aerial photos and satellite imagery. During the latter part of his career he helped guide the development of digital imagery mapping equipment with a defense contractor and finally with a leading photogrammetric equipment developer. Coming from a practical background, he wrote operator manuals and training materials and has conducted training courses in all six of the populated continents. His travels have provided a wealth of material that permeates his writing. Mark and his wife Jill live in the southern foothills of the Appalachians with their two dogs Heidi and Beauregard.

In 1671, Sir Henry Morgan and his men sacked the Spanish City of Panama. Knowing the pirates were coming, the Spanish hid a huge shipment of gold and silver bullion headed for Spain. Unfortunately, they hid it so well that they could never recover it themselves. This modern tale of high adventure, romance and danger summarizes the known facts and predicts where this lost treasure is today.

  • The Ebook Writer, One Author's Journey on March 28, 2013

    In ten pages Scott Borgman has told the story that I wish I had understood years ago: eBooks are a viable pathway for those of us who have a story to tell (and perhaps a few more to come!) but have been frustrated by the system of agents and publishers. He writes from the heart with clarity and encouragement for those of us who are newbies at self publishing. Thanks, Scott!
