Bewildering Stories biography

John Mara began writing fiction in 2019 beside a serene New Hampshire lake after years writing business articles inside a stale New York cubicle.

He writes with the creative input of his wife Holly. They never fail to attract mortified glances when they discuss plot structure in restaurants.

Before turning to fiction in retirement as a more creative outlet, John was a partner in a management consulting firm. His published stories include: The Skeleton’s Scrapbook, Bo’s Last Prank, Wednesdays at Dusk, Maternal Justice, Galaxy Creation 101, and The Student from Xenor.
