Mark Richard Masters was born in Northern California, but his family moved to Oregon when he was very young. After they finally settled down in a very small town, his family fractured. Shortly after that Mark began to write. For many years he would alternate between writing and not. Finally he decided to try to make money off of his hobby.
Mark has appeared in AlienSkin and PurpleVerse.
When did you first start writing?
I started at a young age. No, not 2 or 3, but close. I was about 6 and I wrote and sketched my own comic book, and I have been writing on and off since then.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Most of what I have published so far is electronic Chapbooks, or short stories. But I have been working on a Medieval Style Fantasy that will make novel length.
What would it be like to be an average guy in a small town? What if that small town was overrun by zombies? Is it possible to survive? Would it change you? What would your quality of life be like? These are several questions that Robert never considered, until the day that he found himself and others he knew in the fight for their lives.
In this chapbook you will find a series of poems about a messed up relationship. Do you dare read it? Do you dare explore its dark depths? Will you find you and your loved ones in it? Or do you back away from this work, because it may be the mirror to show the darkness in your soul?
What would you do if you were convicted of murder? Would you deny it? Would you brag about it? Would it make a difference if you really were innocent? How would you react then? These are questions that this long poem seeks to answer.

While I am not a fan of "Gay" stories my complaints as it were with this story is not that. There are some things that distract from the story starting at page 1. If it were not for these I would call this an excellent short story. I would even be tempted to recommend it to others.

I nice collection of non-rhyming micro poems. However that is the problem. All my research says that Haiku are suppose to have a jaxposition between lines 1 and 3. I did not see that in any of these, so I find it hard to view them as Haiku.
