Life may be different than the way we perceive it. In many ways, it should be different.
This is why I write.
T.E. Mark – Writer / Screenwriter
T. E. Mark is a Freelance Writer, Screenwriter and Violinist living in the United States. He was born in Bath Somerset where he lived for five years before coming to the US in 1981. He currently resides in San Francisco California.
Though best known for his fiction writing, he also crafts articles for national and international magazines such as DISCOVER, ET Energy and Home Power, and often writes on education issues for major US universities.
His full-length novels and shorter Novelettes display his thought-provoking visions of our potential future and blunt, often sarcastic views of our present state of affairs. His screenplays are strong and compelling and always leave you with questions.
In a recent Author Interview, Mark was asked: What three pieces of advice he would you give to new writers? He responded:
- “Never use words like phlegmatic in print unless your intent is to piss people off. There are better ways to impress. Design an office block or bridge or something cool like a solar power car or skyscraper.”
- “If you don’t have anything to say, read other writers’ books until you do.”
- “Practice. Read and write every day and never quit.”
Mark also reads and writes poetry – publishing a selection of his personal favourites at a website titled: The Urban Scratch Project. When asked ‘why’ during a 2018 book signing he offered this response:
TE Mark has studied Music, Architecture and English in the United Kingdom and the United States. He’s a member of Writers International, The International Writers’ Guild and continues to write and teach the violin and viola from his Bay Area cooperative.
