Early and Personal Life

Growing up with a particular interest in writing, the future author to be Mark Stone was always immersed in literature. From an early age he would develop his love of reading and writing, refining and honing his craft as an author. Drawing a great deal of his inspiration from the world around him growing up, he would use the sunny beaches of Naples as the basis for much of his work.

Raised between South Carolina and Naples, he would have a southern upbringing, seeing his grandfather every summer.
