Mark Howard lives in the beautiful rolling hills of rural Pennsylvania in the USA.
Writing began as a part time distraction, covering the antics of local critters, and the world around him. It was an interesting way of maintaining sanity during the long winters, and had less of an impact on his health than consuming red wine to pass the time.
It evolved since then into a passion, allowing him to share experiences he has had around the world, from Africa to Europe, to the USA, and elsewhere.
In his latest book he takes a very personal look at a horrific political system which destroyed lives, and considers whether it was not as much a personal choice by many, as it was a political ideology.
