My name is Mark Meier, and I'm an author.
I was brought up on a farm, then assisted my father in the construction business, and knew I didn't want a career involving labor. With a certain amount of skill in computers, I declared that as a major when I went to college. Soon it became obvious I wasn't cut out for that.
For four years I coasted, then finally got sick of the whole "college" scene. A bit of digging revealed the quickest way to get a degree was to take these three Philosophy classes. Yes, I graduated with a BS in Philosophy -- and I love to put it that way.
I flipped burgers, did odd jobs, and eventually one of those turned into a career of sorts. My first radio job was in 1992, and I've worked in that industry ever since.
I've always been a storyteller. One day I became a published storyteller. On Facebook I discovered a ton of others who also told stories. Most of them had the same problem I did: rising to the top of the pool of a million authors.
