Ep:042 Mark Zubro is the author of thirty-seven novels and eight short stories. His book A Simple Suburban Murder won the Lambda Literary Award for Best Gay Men's mystery.

If you are any of those, it is likely you are the corpse, or, at the least, it can be fairly well guaranteed that bad things will happen to you by the end.  He taught eighth graders English and reading for thirty-four years. He was president of the teachers’ union in his district from 1985 until 2006 when he retired. He now spends his time reading, writing, napping, and eating chocolategaymysterypodcast.commarkzubro.comLink to Mark's latest novel, ForeverUnhollowed by Jordan L.
