Author Mark T. Holmes was born and raised in Danbury, Connecticut, attended Babson College in the early 1970’s and went on to serve in the U.S. Coast Guard for eight years in communications and information technology. After leaving the service, he focused on newly developing computer technology and then worked in marketing, mostly for banks and credit unions.
He has written various works off and on over the years including some poetry, a lot of corporate or commercial writing, and recently, a substantial amount of Web content and marketing material. With plans for another round of poetry and a book recalling numerous exploits while serving in the Coast Guard, Mark remains busy with his own small business, Idea Depot, Inc., supporting commercial writing needs and marketing efforts for local companies.
Among other interests, Mark operates an antiques mall booth selling mostly vintage cameras and mid-century goods, and enjoys photography, travel, and golf.
