Mark's work has been recognized by many news outlets.



A public library educated nerd, pre-adolescent Mark Crockett was the only kid in third grade at Lincoln Elementary School in East Orange, New Jersey with an adult library card (yes, he is that old). Nose buried in a book but fleet on the playground, he was athletic enough to be the #5 schoolboy Intermediate High Hurdler in all of North Jersey as a high school senior while writing for the school newspaper.

Juggling radio voice-over's and TV cameraman duties while a sprinter for the United States Air Force’s International Track team while stationed at Davis-Monthan Air Force base in Tucson, AZ., this multi-tasker was a silk-screener, graphic artist, freelance writer, romantic greeting card company owner and adjunct professor of English (Phoenix College, Phoenix, AZ) before penning his first novel (the suspense/thriller “Turkey Stuffer”, Simon and Schuster). His second work (and the first in the “Dead…” trilogy), the suspense/thriller “Dealin’ with the Dead…” is now available (Paddlefoot Press).

Both novels are available as ebooks for Kindle/Nook and PC’s at www.amazon.com To read excerpts of Mark Crockett’s work, register for an account here.
