Hi, my name is Mark Buchanan. I began my career as a writer at age 12 – the year a remarkably creative grade 5 teacher awakened in me the possibilities of language and story. I eventually took a degree in writing, but that was simply to refine and hone what I felt compelled to do anyways, whether well or poorly, paid or unpaid, applauded or scorned.

I ended up, enroute to being a published author, a pastor. My nine books have so far all come out of that world. (For the record, I’m not the Mark Buchanan who writes science books).

I enjoy hearing from readers, even when they take issue with something I’ve written. It lets me know that, at least, the line hasn’t gone dead at that end.

Thanks for being one of those readers, even if only in this instance.
