About the Author

Mason began writing in college, and his first historical novel, "When the Emperor Dies," was published by Random House in the U.S. and by Hamish Hamilton in the U.K. The London Times called it "a splendid first novel," and the El Paso Times said it was "historically sound, panoramic, and perfectly executed." Mason has been a newspaper reporter and magazine editor, and he is currently a freelance writer and editor. Living now in Portland, Oregon, he enjoys backpacking in the Sierras and the Cascades, and he sails his one-man dinghy in storm days on the Willamette River. And, he writes. Three of his novels are available as ebooks: the historical novels The Stained Glass Virgin and March on Magdala and the suspense-thriller Oliver in Bronze.See Mason's website at, or email him at
