About the author

Mark McNease

NEW! I'm now also writing under the name M.A. McNease, as well as my full name. Nothing up my sleeve, no sleight of hand, I just felt like something fresh. I'm the author of the Kyle Callahan Mysteries, three of which have been best sellers on Kindle. My Linda Sikorsky Mystery, 'Last Room at the Cliff's Edge', was called a winner by Publishers Weekly. I released 'Murder at the Paisley Parrot: A Marshall James Thriller' in 2017, with its follow-up, 'Beautiful Corpse' in March, 2020, and the third book, 'Final Audion' set for release in December, 2022. 'Black Cat White Paws: A Maggie Dahl Mystery' came out in 2018, followed by my supernatural chiller, 'A House in the Woods.' Maggie Dahl returned in 'Open Secrets' in 2022 and is currently resting up for a third adventure.

I started the Mark McNease Mysteries podcast ( in 2020 to narrate my own mysteries and fiction,

My short story 'Stop the Car' was selected as a Kindle Single and is now an audiobook narrated by the amazing Braden Wright. It was selected twice to be included in the Amazon Prime reading library. I have 9 audiobooks in total, available for your listening pleasure. Fasten your headphones!

I've also won two Emmys for Outstanding Children's Program for 'Into the Outdoors', a television show I co-created that is now in its 21st year.

I live in the New Jersey woods with my husband, Frank, and our two cats, Wilma and Peanut.
