Mark Tierno

Author of:
"Maldene"

Mark Tierno lives in his home town of Monrovia California, and is the recipient of degrees in Physics and Math. He is also a lifelong reader of fantasy and SciFi.

Written under pretty bleak circumstances, the Maldene series was penned while helping his mother take care of a father stricken with Parkinson's Disease, an effort that quickly became a full time job in itself. But soon the writing became the light in the darkness, bringing hope back and turning the house back into a home.

His father never lived to see it published, but his mother lived long enough to see it first published and a chapter or two read in a library before a small audience. Now his goal is to see his life's work bring pleasure to the world outside his own.
