Mark W Woodring is an author, blogger, veteran, and podcaster. In addition to (intermittently) maintaining his blog, My Own Little Shadow, he owns, produces, edits, and hosts the Visually Stunning Movie Podcast, usually with Co-host Ryan Painter joining in the fun, along with the occasional guest host.
Mark loves all movies, great and small, but admits he has a huge weak spot for B-grade Science Fiction. He is also not ashamed to proclaim his favorite movie of all time is “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”
He has a few short story publications to his credit, and is currently working on completing the novel which has become the Holy Grail of his writing life: the Arthurian Fantasy, “The Cooper’s Son.” He hopes he does not die in the quest.
*See what he did there?
Mark is fluent in three languages: English (in which he holds a Master’s Degree from Weber State University), Military-ese (20 years of dedicated study), and Sarcasm (in which he holds an honorary Doctorate).
He currently lives in Roy, Utah, with his unendingly tolerant wife of 29 years, two cats, and still begrudgingly welcomes occasional visits from their daughter whenever she needs to do laundry.
He also hates to write biographical blurbs.
