About the author (2002)

I enjoy books that take me into the lives of characters whom I might want to have been, or never in my dreams want to walk in their shoes. These are the kinds of stories I write, as well. Story to me is all about the characters, and I want to read authors who take care to bring their characters alive! Hello, my name is Mark Beyer. I write novels. Good ones. Readers shall discover that my stories track the nuances of experience. People interested in reading strong fiction will quickly notice a common purpose among its writers: we work to understand the character of men and women in contemporary society. My novels explore the nexus between art and life, relationships and betrayal, work and diversion. Whether you think a little or a lot about these pairs, they play through portions of our lives on a scale that surpasses the otherwise banal moments we might often ascribe to "life." I'm writing a new novel about the lives of Max and Greta, married 40 years and wondering what's it all been worth; meanwhile I continue to blog about books and book culture, and writing. Feel free to contact me about reading and writing. I enjoy corresponding with new people and creative minds. My motto is "read, live, write." I once lived in middle-America, in Chicago. Now I reside in Europe. It's a pleasant continent.
