Mark Jenkins is a British-American author of speculative fiction — primarily sci-fi, thrillers, and historical fiction. He is a physician and life-long seeker of knowledge, who thrives on deep dives. Mark is as excited by the challenge of exploring a new subject in a book, as he is by learning to solo-climb glaciated stratovolcanoes — and centers these moments of discovery in his fictional works. He is the author of Klickitat – and other stories (speculative mountaineering fiction tales), and the novel, Saving Schrödinger’s Cat (Sci-fi/time travel/historical fiction – Fall 2021).
Mark is an avid cyclist, open water swimmer, and admirer of seals. He currently lives in the Pacific Northwest where he and his wife, Joanna, enjoy hiking, climbing, stand-up paddle boarding (when Mark can stay upright), photography, and quiet walks in nature.
