About the Author

John Mark Cunningham grew up in Athens, Georgia surrounded by an assortment of storytellers, saints and scoundrels. This southern author found his life in literature and writing at an early age. After reading Erich Maria Remarque’s All Quiet On The Western Front at age 11, Mark discovered a new world through books. While attending Georgia Southern University, he developed a style of writing that wove his southern roots into modern issues. Short stories such as “A Song For Laura Maple”, “Ludie’s Last Dare” and “I Picked One Hell Of A Day” paved the way for Mark’s first novel, The Home Place. Mark currently shares his time between Woodstock, Georgia and his childhood home in Athens. His publication, The Southern Wind (, showcases authors and poets from across the South. Mark’s next full-length novel entitled, Back To The Garden, is projected for release in 2002.
