Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Mark Noce is an avid traveler and backpacker. He double-majored in History and English at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, with a concentration in Creative Writing. He then went on to earn his Masters in English at the same university. By day, he works as a Technical Writer, having spent much of his career at places like Google and Facebook. In addition to writing historical fiction and fantasy, he also writes short fiction. His publications include London Bound (Moebius Magazine), Meet Me at the Waterfront (Every Day Fiction), and Chronicles of the SFPD (Every Day Fiction). When not writing or reading, he’s probably listening to U2, sailing on his dad’s boat, or gardening with his wife and baby son.
