Marcus L. Garand


Marcus Garand is a former sales and marketing executive in the professional services industry. Two Graves For Waziristan is his first novel.

The son of a career military officer and a product of military high schools and college, he enlisted in the Marine Corps and served in Vietnam. During a varied career, he directed international and government sales operations for US- and foreign-based organizations in the software and solar industries, he was an independent consultant advising companies on military equipment sales, and he marketed the services of former special operations personnel. For a time, he ran a private company that specialized in security for bars and nightclubs.

He was present in Nairobi when the bombing of the American embassy occurred and he was living in Washington, DC, when the Pentagon was attacked on 9/11. The horrific events profoundly shaped his perspective on ideological conflict and terrorism. While in Montenegro watching a BBC special on the death of Osama bin Laden and the confusion surrounding it, he was inspired to write. Two Graves For Waziristan is the result of that inspiration.
