T he Mouse Who Poked an Elephant and Mouse Bear and Elephant Games are two funny yet frightening novels of speculative fiction set in our very near future. The books identify and discuss realistic solutions to improve on our current political systems and to begin recovery from the horrifying Baby Boomer environmental legacy. The solutions discussed will require us to change our ways.
Are we willing? Are we brave enough? The Mouse Who Poked an Elephant (Book 1) and Mouse, Bear and Elephant Games (Book 2 ) end with America and Canada poised for war over resources, political differences, and insults, both real and imagined. Both novels are now available from all on line book sellers, or (better) directly from the author on this website.
T he author’s early years were spent in three small but beautiful Southern Ontario communities: Paris, Huntsville and Springfield. As a teenager Mark survived (more or less) by working (more or less) as a : gravedigger, farmassist, greenskeeper, construction labourer and tree planter.
At the age of 20 – seeking some direction, adventure (and hoping to stay out of trouble) Mark joined the Royal Canadian Navy.
