His currently lives in Saratoga Springs, Utah with his wife and four cats. He loves boating, camping, hiking and visiting national parks.
His goal as an author is to do more than just tell good stories. He wants to make a difference in the lives of the readers.

My mom (Vachele Higbee) goes to every Book of Mormon Expo, and recently she finished reading my book. She got so excited that she convinced me that I need to share it with everyone at the expo.
“At Thanksgiving Mark announced a surprise! He said that his book was done and asked the family if they wanted to read it, and to give him feedback.
I had never read a science fiction book, and I couldn’t remember reading a novel since I was a teenager, but I wanted to read his book.
I discovered so many wonderful teachings encoded in his book, such as having faith, and standing up for the right, keeping promises, courage, determination, life after death, a creator and worlds populated without number where all of the people look the same, the value of friendship, and that people can change, the importance of serving others, and the power of a father’s love for his child. I noticed that the main character didn’t ever give up! As I read I felt uplifted, and stronger and stronger.” –Vachele Higbee
