About me

Who are you?

I’m a writer, communicator and editor. Above all, I’m as a storyteller. Never tell me the odds. I live in Calgary with my wife, son and two cats. I drink a lot of tea and diet coke.

What do you write? I wrote urban fantasy before it was cool. Now I mostly write epic fantasy and science fiction. I also write short stories and flash fiction. I’ve done NaNoWriMo for ten years.

Where can I read what you’ve written?

Try some of my flash fiction. Or, you can check out the NSFW work of my dear friend, Richard Charles.

When did you figure out you were a writer?

In the sixth grade, our teacher assigned us to write a one or two page story. I wrote twenty seven pages, and I was nowhere near being finished. Other teachers have told me that I was prolific for years before this.

Who is your favourite villain?

Dr. Horrible. He has a PHD in Horribleness.

How many hats do you own?


What authors have influenced you?

There are a number of authors I’ve drawn on in the past. They include Timothy Zahn, Dave Farland, David Gemmell, and R.A. Salvatore. I’m currently drawing on authors like Brandon Sanderson, Tiffany Reisz and N.K. Jemisin.


I want to know more about you for some reason.

I’m flattered! The best way is probably to follow me on twitter, @markhorejsi. You can also contact me at mark.horejsi at gmail.com.
