M. R. Carner was born and raised in beautiful Pacific Northwest. Most of his working life was centered on marketing and management until a serious illness forced him to slow down and rest at home. During that time, one of his clients suggested as a joke that he should write a book, so he did. Over the next three years he completed several fictional stories in genres ranging from modern day romance, to World War II and several westerns. Most of his stories are loaded with humor as well as characters that deal with everyday life situations as the story unfolds. He's an avid outdoorsman and loves camping, hunting, and a good story told over a campfire at night. With a life time of experiences as a base for his work, he continues to write his stories hoping they'll be enjoyed by all who read them.
