Personal life

After Mark Budz was born in New Jersey, he moved around a lot because his father worked for the National Park Service, living in Arizona, California, and Colorado. In 1982, Mark graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a bachelor's degree in Architectural Engineering. After graduating, he worked at several different jobs, including sales at manufacturer’s representative for ITT Bell & Gossett, retail sales, publisher's reader for a small press, and technical support. Currently, Mark is a technical writer for a software company near Silicon Valley.

In the late 1980s, Mark moved to Eugene, Oregon to attempt to become a full time writer, beginning with short stories.[1] Although becoming a short story writer did not work out, he decided to become a novel writer, which began with his first novel Clade in 2003. In subsequent years, he published other novels such as Crache and Idolon.
