Paul Mark Tag worked as a research scientist for the Naval Research Laboratory until his retirement in 2001, when he jumped headlong into pursuing his dream job of writing fiction. Before 2001 and for another year afterward, he prepared for that possibility by writing short stories exclusively. Some of them found homes in various literary magazines, including Story Bytes, Potpourri, Green’s Magazine, and The Storyteller.
Tag’s first novel, a thriller called Category 5, debuted in 2005, taking advantage of his scientific background in meteorology. Prophecy and White Thaw: The Helheim Conspiracy followed. Trying something different, Tag next tackled an historical novel revolving around the Japanese internment of World War II: How Much Do You Love Me? At that point, realizing how much he missed writing thrillers, he penned Retribution Times Two, the sequel to the thriller trilogy.
Tag lives with his wife, Becky, in Monterey, California. Please visit him at www.paulmarktag.com.
