Mark M. Dean and his family live in Southeast Ohio on a small horse farm nestled into the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.
His endeavors as an Author, Lyricist, and Poet are fueled
by childhood memories of many family tales and exploits regarding
the colorful characters in his clan.
Mark has had the pleasure of living in ten states stretching from
Rhode Island to Texas while also having lived and traveled abroad.
His 20 years of Military service involved 12 family moves which gave him keen insight
into the importance of bonding through stories, songs, and poems.
Mark struggled with childhood dyslexia and desires to payback all
all those that helped him develop his imagination
through reading and storytelling.
He has both an Undergraduate and Master’s Degree from
Miami University and Ohio University respectively.
