Mark Lacy is the author of The Ban of Irsisri, an epic fantasy set in a unique, vivid world. Packed with mysticism and action, this book drips with Mark's incredible prose.

Mark was born in Cookeville, Tennessee and has lived in eight different states across the eastern U.S. Currently a handful of grandchildren hold Mark and his wife hostage in southwestern Ohio. Son of - brother of - and father of a writer, Mark has had a lifelong interest in writing, as well as reading. He acknowledges he is an unrepentant bibliovore, compulsively tracking every book he's read for over forty-five years. His first science fiction story, written at age eight, is thankfully (mercifully!) not in print. He has published everything from short stories to personal essays, articles, reviews, and scientific papers. A love for the outdoors is part of the fabric of all Mark's writing.
