My name is Robert Marks, and I am an author. I’m also a professional writer, editor, publisher, and researcher. My professional work has included being the Spokesman and Communications Director for Darksword Armory (and the editor of their magazine, The Blade’s Edge), a communications researcher for the Department of National Defence, a writer and editor for the Faculty of Law and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Queen’s University, and I teach a course in writing and disaster analysis at Queen’s University. I’m the owner and publisher of Legacy Books Press. And, in my spare time, my hobbies have included longsword, playing the violin (badly), and slight of hand.
