Reviews (Excerpts)

- "I thoroughly enjoyed Mark's firstbook, and found myself smiling from the memories of my days in the Navy. I laughed outloud many times, and found it hard to put the book down. Very enjoyable! Look forward to his next book." - M. Cannon

- "Being a former sailor, I started reading a book with a critical eye. It didn’t take long to become fully engaged in the story. The author has an amazing way of recounting the funny bits that I remember from my team in the Navy, as well as spinning a quite thrilling story, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, and couldn’t put it down. I highly recommend this book [...]"  - Slimzbiz

- "[...] Mr. Albertson has a way with words that either leads you into suspense or makes you laugh out loud. I guarantee you won't ever look at a pair of dentures in the same light." - redfox_in CNY (Amazon)

- "[...] Reading Mark's first novel, I could hear the voices, feel the friendship, and smell the sea from topside on our many cruises. Great job Bert! Write us another" - Kevin E. Wonoski

About the Author

Mark David Albertson 
is what some of his friends have called a Renaissance Man, which in Mark’s mind is a great term for someone who couldn’t decide what to do in life. 

Joining the US Navy after high school, he served at the end of the Vietnam era and mostly in the midst of the cold war, being discharged honorably (officially). He enlisted in the Texas Air National Guard during college serving as a Staff Sergeant while attending college at the University of Texas at San Antonio, and then Law School at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas. 

Mark practiced law for over 30 years in Washington State before returning to his beloved Texas. Along the way, he owned a private investigation agency, a hypnotherapy practice, and pursued other various and random distractions. 

As an attorney, he was nationally and internationally published in Law Journals and Law Books, spoke internationally on legal issues, taught college classes as an adjunct professor, and managed to help with the raising of three fine children. 

Mark is a passionate photographer, entertaining public speaker and writer. Mark currently lives with his sweetie, Karen, in the Hill Country of Texas on their ranch, Los Perros Locos, and all of the children at home currently have fur or feathers.
