Meet the Author

Mark Binder is the author of numerous award-winning books and CDs. As a writer, his work generally falls into three categories: original and traditional folk-style tales, the “Chelm” series of books and stories, and autobiographical whoppers and lies.

Mark's Bed Time Story Book series is a world-wide best seller with more than 60,000 copies in print.

He is also the author of "Stories for Peace — resolving conflict / handling bullies", a collection for change. It includes stories and essays designed to ask questions and provoke answers.

In 2010, he released two new live spoken-word audio albums: A Holiday Present and It Was a Dark and Stormy Night (spooky comedy). His novel, The Brothers Schlemiel was recently published in a beautifully illustrated hardcover edition. It Ate My Sister, is a favorite book for youngsters ages 10 and up (and adults with a sense of humor).

“I write and tell stories for a living. No matter which genre I am working in, whether you are reading or listening, I hope that the stories cross boundaries and are universal in their appeal to people of all ages and cultures.”
—Mark Binder

Mark claims to have a degree in Mythology from Columbia University, where he studied storytelling with Spalding Gray. He is a graduate of the Trinity Rep Conservatory, earned a Masters degree in English and Theater, and has taught “Telling Lies” to college and high school students. For more than a decade, he has toured the United States sharing his books and spoken-word stories with audiences of all ages, flavors and varieties. He regularly performs in schools, and community centers, religious venues, theaters and festivals.

Mark was born in Newton, MA, grew up in Bethesda, MD, has lived in New York, Cambridge and London and resides in Providence RI. In his spare time he bakes bread and makes pizza. He has three children, two step-children, and a beautiful wife.
