MARK NOCE writes historical fiction with a passion. Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, he has been an avid traveler and backpacker. He earned his BA and MA from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, where he also met his beautiful wife. By day, he works as a Technical Writer, having spent much of his career at places like Google and Facebook. He also writes short fiction online. When not reading or writing, he's probably listening to U2, sailing his dad's boat, or gardening with his family.
His historical Queen Branwen series, BETWEEN TWO FIRES and DARK WINDS RISING, are both available wherever books are sold.
Reminiscent of classics like _The Mists of Avalon_ and _A Game of Thrones_, and newer popular titles like _Hild_, Branwen's story combines elements of mystery and romance with Noce's gift for storytelling.
