About the Author

Mark Francis Schwab has written tourism news stories, poetry and fiction since his college days at the State University of New York at Buffalo.

Mr. Schwab served as a journalist on the Oakland Tribune in California, Public Affairs Director for the Zoological Society of Buffalo, Director of Tourism for the Buffalo Area Chamber of Commerce, and appointed by-then Governor Hugh Cary as Chairman of the “I LOVE NEW YORK Summer Festival.” Later, Governor Pataki appointed him Deputy Director of ILNY. Also, he was one of the chief tourism architects for “OHIO, the Heart of it all.”

Mr. Schwab also owned his advertising and public relations agency much of this time, writing headlines and copy for an international client base such as Waste Management, Frigidaire, WESCO, Rotary Power, Cardinal Health and Bry-Air.

Today he resides in the Adirondack footprint, working on two more books of fiction containing seven historically based short-stories each: The High Peaks and Saratoga Times.
