NATIVE BLOOD is the first in a series titled: Zeb Hanks: Small Town Sheriff: Big Time Trouble. The books all take place in and around the Safford, AZ. area and the San Carlos Apache Reservation.

HOLES IN THE SKY is the second in the series and continues the development of the protagonists from NATIVE BLOOD. Who owns what is traditionally considered sacred? Can the Catholic Church legally conspire with the federal government to steal the most sacrosanct of Native American holy places?


NATIVE ANGEL/ADIOS ANGEL is the third book in the ZEB HANKS series. Also a murder mystery that takes place in rural Arizona. Sheriff Zeb Hanks has his hands full when sociopath Jimmie Joe Walker, recently released from an Arizona state prison, masterminds a devious plan to make himself filthy rich. His plan involves Ángel Gómez, a down-on-his-luck half Mescalero Apache/half Mexican. Ángel's alcoholism and far-fetched dreams make him an unwitting dupe in Jimmie Joe's plans which end up endangering Ángel's own life as well as the lives of those he loves.

Set in and around the mining towns of Safford and Morenci, Arizona and near the San Carlos Apache Reservation, this Sheriff Zeb Hanks tale takes the reader on quite a ride. While dealing with the consequences of choices he has made, Zeb is confronted with inconceivable loss in his personal and professional life. Deputy Kate Steele's relationship with Eskadi Black Robes, Tribal Chairman of the San Carlos Apache Reservation, becomes conflicted as she works with Josh Diamond, local gun shop owner, to provide support for the sheriff. Ultimately circumstances cause Sheriff Hanks to question everyone and everything in his world, shifting his very foundation.

ADIÓS ÁNGEL/NATIVE ANGEL reveals the complexities and contradictions that are part of life's gritty nature. It is a story of evil, alcoholism, love and betrayal.


NATIVE JUSTICE is book four in the ZEB HANKS series. With his heart blow to bits by a staggering loss, Sheriff ZEB HANKS falls into an abyss of drunkeness, hatred and rage. With the help of Deputy Kate Steele, former Sheriff Jake Dablo, Medicine Man Jimmy Song Bird and close friend Josh Diamond, Zeb pulls himself back from the edge and turns his rage on the cause of his torment, a Mexican drug and human trafficking cartel. On his quest for revenge, ZEB grapples with how far he must go to eact justice and whether the ends justifies the means.

NATIVE BONES is book five in the ZEB HANKS series. Two murdered funeral directors and a missing body have Zeb Hanks and his team joining forces with San Carlos Tribal Police Chief, Rambler Braing. Unearthed, ancient graves, a new deputy with political aspirations, the illegitimate son of an Arizona senator and Apache lore and mysticism all play major roles in in hunting down an evil doer with a generational history.

HEARTLAND HEROES is a coming-of-age tale wrapped around a mystery that harkens back to the time of long summers, best friends and adventure at every turn. It's the summer of 1966 in idyllic, rural Minnesota. Thirteen-year-olds Max Scanlan and Charlie Scerbiak are planning on a summer of baseball and goofing off when one suspicious death followed by a murder turns them into amateur sleuths. Local police, a renowned detective and the townspeople are convinced a ne'er-do-well with connections to the dead is the killer. Max and Charlie suspect the accused man to be innocent and set out to prove it. But they find that each new discovery places them in greater danger as they attempt to expose the real killer. HEARTLAND HEROES is not part of the ZEB HANKS series.

Books 6 through 10 of the ZEB HANKS series will be released approximately one book per year. The series will continue as long as the readership is there. Many thanks to all my readers. I try to respond to each reviewer personally.

As a health care professional I write a weekly alternative health care column for a half dozen newspapers as well as articles for professional health magazines. I will be publishing a book, PERFECT HEALTH: HOW TO FIND THE NATURAL HEALER WHO IS RIGHT FOR YOU in 2017-18. This will be a lay person's guide to understanding natural health and to finding an alternative health care provider who is right for you.

Also soon to be published by Mark Reps will be a pair of mysteries surrounding the Catholic Church and its deepest darkest inner workings. These books are finished and in the re-writing and re-editing process.

The books, THE ABBOT'S BROTHER and THE HIDDEN PROPHECIES, follow experienced "church investigators" Nia Grayson and Dylan Taggert as they travel far and wide to solve ancient and current mysteries. If you liked the DAVINCI CODE and ANGELS AND DEMONS by Dan Brown or THE NAME OF THE ROSE by Umberto Eco you will love these.

Additionally BUTTERLY, follows a former Vietnam era MP, now a retired LA cop as he heads back to SE Asia to solve a series of gruesome murders, FINGERS AND FACES, a mystery set in Half Moon Bay, CA and finally WHY A WOMAN CRIES, a novella of love and loss.

These books can only be out there with your help via a guerilla marketing campaign that involves you telling others and writing reviews. In this new world of publishing this is the only viable avenue for new writers. Please support this system by using social media to tell others of these books.

Sheriff Zebulon Hanks, whom we met in "Native Blood," knows something strange is happening related Mount Graham, which is the most sacred place to the people of the Apache Nation. When the local priest is killed Zeb has no idea that his death is related to the concerns of the people on the nearby reservatioin about Mount Graham. Why would the Catholic Church be involved with this remote area? When one of the deputies becomes ill, former sheriff, Jake comes back to help. How does his connection to the Medicine Man on the Reservation help solve this dilemma? Rep's knowledge of the Apache ways is suprising and informative. It's a fun read!

Heavy on western lore and atmosphere, this is a great book for mystery lovers to enjoy. The story is unique with obviously well-researched details. Light touches of humor kept the story from becoming too dark or clinical. For those who may have read author Reps' first book in this young series you are already acquainted with characters who feel like old acquaintances. Despite some slow spots this novel rates five stars for originality in a genre well-filled with other authors' work. To author Mark Reps I can only say MORE PLEASE. And hold the parsnips.

The second in the series, again an intriguing story more steeped in indian culture than the first (for me). I knew who done it, but not necessarily why. An interesting twist and sadly not outside the realm of possibilities.

I read the first book and liked a lot of things about it and overlooked a lot. I liked the setting and premise.

This one needs a more critical look. He needs someone to cut out the purple prose ànd remove at least one adjective ànd adverb every line. For example "The dying priest's stench-filled breath echoed shallowly in his captor's ears." And this is only in the first few pages.

Mark Reps must be a really nice guy and have a lot of friends because his reviews are good. I just don't understand it.

Started out with a bang but then moved too slowly with a lot of unnecessary details. The ending left me hanging, so the killer was caught but what about the sacred land?

I found that the general story and the "mystery" that it was about could have been an interesting story and the sheriff and associated characters were pretty well developed. I did find, and resented, the very anti-Catholic views that were expressed and the obvious preferential treatment of Mormons. The story could have been written without near the venom that the writer expressed for the Catholic church and it's priests. How anyone of the Mormon faith could condemn anyone of the Catholic faith is beyond me. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!! The dialog between the sheriff and his "girlfriend" is also very juvenile.
