The multi-talented Mark Lavorato was raised on the Canadian Prairies, but has spent most of his adult life living, working, and writing on his travels throughout Central and North America, the Caribbean, and Europe. He was inspired to write while living in the Austrian Alps, reflecting on unsettling true stories he’d heard in the jungles of Guatemala. Aside from his writing, Mark is also a photographer and composer. Lavorato now lives in Montreal. He is the author of two previous publications: Veracity (Rain Publishing, 2007) and Believing Cedric (Brindle and Glass, 2011).
