Mark Petersen


Addictions counselor by day. Crime fiction addict and author by night. Any resemblance to the quirky criminals in my book is, um, mostly coincidental. Previously employed as an archaeologist, truck driver, logger, and bike-tour guide in Paris. I attended law school for one day. That was enough. Crime is way more interesting.
