Mark August's picture

Mark August

Writing for work or academics is not the same as writing what an author loves. For Mark August, his passion for fantasy and science fiction came from late nights of page-turning reading. In 2016, his older daughter challenged him to Camp National Novel Writing Month (Camp NaNoWriMo), and storytelling emerged from a dormant childhood dream. 
Camp NaNo and NaNoWriMo every year is now a tradition.
In 2020, the pieces came together with a Writers of the Future Honorable Mention for a short story inspired by the background for one of the key characters in the Chronomancer Series.
 It was time to share writing with people other than teachers, coworkers, and competition judges.
Mark is a proud USAF veteran, husband to his high school sweetheart who inspires him to write, and father to four amazing kids starting their own lives. Someday, Mark and his wife will settle down in their forever home, finally moving past “Home is where the Air Force sends us.”
