I'm a crime / thriller fiction writer, who pays the bills working for a large investment company. When not doing the above, I like to play lacrosse and spend time with family and friends. I'm usually reading at least one novel on any given day. I love Rock-n-Roll and good crime / heist movies.
My goal when writing MINDJACKER was to create a story that would appeal to a broad range of readers, especially those who really enjoy the style and storylines of "Rock-n-Rolla", "Snatch", "Pulp Fiction", and "Smokin' Aces" to name a few.
I'm currently working on my next crime novel, titled "Sissy Murphy"

This is what I love about Smashwords, you can read stories by established writers, and in this case it was free. I decided to read GROW HOUSE based on title alone, and was shocked to find out that John McFetridge was the author. A huge bonus! GROW HOUSE is a well written short story with a nice brisk pace and smooth dialoge. It packed alot of punch for 4,700 word story. Overall, an entertaining read that flows well and reads fast.

Fryupdale is unlike anything I have read before and I mean that in positive way. It reminded me of an experimental, concept collection of stories all centering around the fiction town of Fryupdale, it's inhabitants, and goings on. The stories and vignette's are all well writeen and edited. I would certainly read more of Mark's writing as it is very apparent that he has talent and a great eye for subtle details.
