Mark Schreiber has been writing full time since graduating high school at age fifteen. His first novel, Princes in Exile, was published in hardcover by Beaufort Books in 1984, made into a feature film and translated into German, Russian, Danish, Dutch and Japanese. He has twice received the State of Ohio Literary Fellowship. He has written over thirty-five books, mostly adult literary fiction, but also young adult fiction, narrative nonfiction and illustrated educational works.
He was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and attended Walnut Hills and City-Wide High Schools. He has been a digital nomad since 2015, living in the U.S., Amsterdam, Australia, East Asia and Costa Rica, where he has two stepsons.
He is proud to have become friend with another Mark Schreiber, who writes about popular culture and crime for the Japan Times and whose own books can be found on Amazon.
