Mark Ferguson

Mark Andrew Ferguson is a writer, freelance designer and book marketer living in Tucson.

After graduating with a BA in English from Rutgers University, Mark spent eight years working in publishing, most of that time marketing hardcovers for the Harper imprint.

His first book, "The Lost Boys Symphony" grew out of his personal experiences with a close friend suffering from mental illness. This story, combined with a time travel conceit he'd thought up for a sketch comedy group at Rutgers, evolved over the course of ten years before the novel was completed.

Ferguson's next book—a middle grade adventure story about death, attachment and haunting—will be published by Kathy Dawson books (Penguin Books for Young Readers) in 2020.
