A special evening with Mark – we promise it won’t be scary!

It’s true that Mark lives in a special world: Sometimes there are scary things in the dark, but there is also romance, humor, science fiction, mysteries from the great beyond and so much more!  If you know of Cambria resident Mark Onspaugh primarily as a horror writer then this evening at the Fire Dove Gallery in Cambria will introduce you to a more poignant, funny and lyrical side of your favorite local author.  Recently nominated for a prestigious Pushcart Prize, Mark has sold nearly 40 short stories in the last few years and is hoping to bring you a novel very soon.

About Mark:  Mark Onspaugh is a native Californian who grew up on a steady diet of horror, science fiction and DC Comics. He’s a proud member of the Horror Writers Association and the International Thriller Writers Assocation. In addition to the produced film “Kill Katie Malone,” he has several other screenplays in various stages of development, and was also one of the writers of the cult favorite “Flight of the Living Dead.”

While Onspaugh is definitely a fan of the horror genre, he also writes science fiction and comedy.  He polished his comedy writing (and improv skills) at the Groundlings Theater in L.A., where he studied under Lisa Kudrow (“Friends”), Michael McDonald (“Mad TV”) and Heather Morgan (“The Dana Carvey Show”).
