Meet the Author

Mark W. Leach lives in Chesterfield, Missouri with his wife, two sons, and English bulldog, Beatrice. Mark first became interested in archaeology when his youngest son found a 4,000 year old stone knife in their neighborhood creek. This chance discovery sparked his interest, motivating him to discover and document numerous prehistoric Native American archaeological sites in the Chesterfield area. He is a past vice-president of the Missouri Archaeological Society and former board member with the Powell Archaeological Research Center. Mark currently serves as a trustee to the former, and is a commissioner with the Chesterfield Historic and Landmarks Preservation Commission. He is the founding member of the Missouri Mound Adoption Project (a coalition of volunteers dedicated to the preservation of Native American burial mounds) and co-director of the Blake Mound Preservation Project. His writing includes six works of non-fiction, an educational archaeology website (Mac Quest Program), as well as two archaeology documentaries. Mark's other books available on Amazon may be found through searching Mark W. Leach.
