About the Author

Initially, I wrote my lyrics, poems and log books of my trips and adventures in pencil, pen or a type of medium-tip felt pen, and when not adventuring I would occasionally write passages as to what the rest of my life had been like in-between adventures. I somehow managed to keep all these pages of writings intact and together through the late 1970s and early 1980s, and went on to expand my writing horizons by writing a small book of philosophy in 1978 called 'In Search of the Meaning of Life (A Book of Philosophy).' Later on, I also began a series of writing exercises that documented my thoughts and feelings of the moment in a form of journaling. I never forgot Laura's comment about perhaps one day writing a book of my early lyrics and poems, which helped focus me to preserve and safeguard the early writings of my life. I kept a logbook during our bicycle adventure of over 8,000 miles around the United States with my friend Bruce in 1976-1977, where I updated the events of each and every day on the road. From this initial experience of journaling while on the road during The Great Adventure, I went on to keep logbooks of all my later adventures as a matter of habit. It was important to me to keep a record of my life and adventures from early on, due to the fact that everyone thought I was foolish for leaving college and was throwing my life away. During those early adventures of mine I still had no idea what I would do with my life and sought out adventure as a way of stalling for time, so as to give myself both time and space to eventually figure out what I would do when I grew up. I have attempted to write about my life's experiences, lyrics, poems, philosophy, songs and thoughts in a way that inspires you, the reader, to live all your hopes, dreams and passions in life as well. For we only get this one life to live, and it might as well be the life we've always dreamed of and imagined it could be! Cheers! Mark --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Note: All my books include a Preface, Introduction and Table of Contents prior to Chapter One, so if the Kindle version opens to Chapter One, please jump to the beginning of the book - thanks! :) 'In Search of the Meaning of Life (An Autobiography): Book One - The Early Years (The Start of a Dream)' is the beginning of my personal story. It begins the tale of my journeys, dreams and adventures - of the time when I didn't like the options life presented me with and I chose instead to find my own way, and embark on a great adventure - forever altering the course of my life. Each volume of my serialized autobiography is a standalone book and doesn't require reading the earlier books in the series beforehand.

Ever since that momentous day in September of 1976 departing on 'The Great Adventure,' I've never stopped viewing life as an adventure! I hope that in some small way my autobiography will help you live all your hopes and dreams, too! May fair skies bless your journeys, steady sea breezes fill your sails, and may you always follow your heart wherever it leads you in your quest to live your hopes, dreams, passions and desires in life!

I've published twenty books to date since January 2018, including twelve volumes of my autobiography, my adventure trilogy 'Jonathan's Amazing Adventures' (Jonathan's Dream, Jonathan's Return and Jonathan's Wish), my children's book trilogy 'The Adventures of Sam the Tugboat,' my self-help motivational book 'Organizational Aerodynamics' and my novel 'The Many Portraits of Life (A Novel).' My literary goal of 2019 is to update the format for a few of my early books (content remains the same) and then continue publishing my serialized autobiography.

I hope you will enjoy my personal adventures as well as the fictional stories of adventure I've written, and that you, too, will soon follow the path less-traveled by in your life as well!

Cheers! Mark
