Mark has never been a New York Times, USA Today, or Amazon bestselling author. He hasn't sold millions of copies worldwide, and his books haven't been translated into a dozen languages. In fact, his wife regularly questions his competency of the English language.
A native of Ann Arbor, Michigan, Mark almost earned his undergraduate degree from Michigan State University in East Lansing. Unfortunately, after five years, they asked him not to come back. Had he earned the degree, he planned on following that up by going to astronaut school. From there, he hoped to be the shortest man to ever set foot on the moon. Because Michigan State dashed Mark's dream of living on the moon, he thinks it's abundantly clear that his former university has a thing against short people.
Mark wrote his first book, The Andrew Offerman Chronicles: Vol. I, Prank It Like a Man, for his youngest son, Alex. Then he turned around and dedicated that book to his oldest son, Anthony. If Alex hadn't eaten Mark's last slice of Father's Day cake that wouldn't have happened. But he did, so he had to wait for the second book, Breaking Cupid's Arrow, to get his dedication.
Mark lives in Cedar Park, Texas with his wife, Nella, his two teenage sons (freeloaders), and two cocker spaniels who do nothing but bark and lick their butts.
He is currently working on a way to persuade Elon Musk to send him to the moon. (For free.)
