About Me

My name is Patrick C. Marks (emphasis on the “C”, as in “that’s what differentiates me from the 115 other Patrick Marks’ currently residing in America”) and this is the official “About Me” page for my blog.

Isn’t this exciting???

The basics are…really basic. I’m a husband, father, teacher, pastor, writer, musician and Drum Corps Fan (see DCI.org). I am also…Bald…

I have a crooked back (had to wear a back brace when I was a kid making me the ultimate geek with a piece of plastic and aluminum that made me look like a cyborg).

I worry too much about weight even though I’m not really that heavy…

I would do much better if I had actually USED the gym membership I paid enough – from which I probably could have bought another house with the fees I’ve spent over the years…

Seriously – I am married to Melissa and next to knowing God that’s the best thing going for me. I was a single parent with 3 kids for nearly 4 years when I met and married Melissa and together we have two more kids. For those of you that were not math majors that means we have 5 kids in various states of maturity (or, more accurately, immaturity)

On May 21st, 2003 I was made an Honorary United States Marine. No kidding… I’ve got the certificate on my office wall and everything.

I DID teach general science and high school Biology, but now I’m the full time Pastor of Calvary Chapel FourteenSix  (www.fourteensix.com).

I live in Phoenix but I’m 1/2 Canadian (you guess which is the better half). I am the author of a short story, two novels and one non-fiction book…

“The Far Frigid North” (https://goo.gl/YkUv4w) A hilarious short tale.

Crash” (https://goo.gl/DfvgTS) A young adult, suspense (and Romance) novel.

“Legend” (https://goo.gl/sXjZmZ) A full length, Christian Suspense Thriller.

Understanding Evolution and Creation” (https://goo.gl/EGC8DU). Why Evolution is science FICTION. Foreword by Dr. Duane T. Gish, Vice President emeritus, Institute for Creation Research, Dallas TX.

Thanks for reading…

  1. You forgot that although your kids ran off and joined the NAVY, at least your sister (me) joined the Marines 🙂
