My published fiction include the romantic comedies Storm Chaser and the Notorious Ian Grant and a related story collection, Storm Chaser Shorts, all published by Whiskey Creek Press. The No-Campfire Girls, a humor-adventure YA novel, came out in 2014, and a humor piece by me was including in the anthology My Funny Valentine. A short story of mine was published in Strange Portals: Ink Slingers' Fantasy/Horror Anthology.

In 2013 we published a local history book, Smoky Days and Sleepless Nights: A Century or So With the Albion Fire Department. A humor book based on my column, Slightly Off the Mark, came out in 2015, and later that year Arcadia Publishing released Images of America: Albion and Noble County.

For two decades I've been an emergency dispatcher for the Noble County Sheriff Department. I served over three decades as a volunteer for the Albion Fire Department, holding such positions as safety officer, training officer, secretary, and public information officer. I've also done public relations writing for the Noble County Relay For Life, among other organizations, and served two terms on the Albion Town Council. When asked if I have any free time, I laugh hysterically.

I live in Albion, Indiana, with my wife and editor Emily, a cowardly ball python named Lucius, and a loving, scary dog named Beowulf. I have two daughters and twin grandsons, and so naturally am considering writing a children’s book. I can be found online at

I'm also on Twitter as MarkRHunter, and there's a Facebook fanpage for my writing work at
