Bestselling author Mark Stevens goes Indie and writes first children's book and novel

Mark Stevens is an entrepreneur, advisor, business builder, and an in-demand speaker at organizations from Wharton School of Business, Nike, Oracle, Virgin Air, ReMax and many other companies. He is the founder and former CEO of the marketing firm, MSCO. He wrote his bestselling book, Your Marketing Sucks, in 2003, which put him on the map. He is a dog lover and a hopeless romantic.

The most important thing the author wants readers to gain from his book:

I have witnessed the miracle of magical dogs. Dogs are the North Stars to universal goodness and generosity. I bring children into a world they never experienced before: the phantasmagorical dream of an amazing dog. I read to them, with my dog, Sky, and open their hearts and minds to the love of others. Not as a lecturer, but as an adventurer, with a Golden Retriever as their guide.

Why the author is an authority on the subject of his book:

How magical the relationship with a Golden Retriever can be! SKY is my third Golden. He came at a time when my children were grown after losing my previous Golden, Blue, to cancer. The house was so quiet, so my wife and I decided to get another dog. SKY was like a burst of sunshine. We brought him home as a tiny puppy, placed him in the pool, and he swam right into the deep end. We knew he was special. He is five years old now, but I still lovingly call him "The Boy."

Speaking Engagements and School Presentations:

What it's like to see the world through the eyes of a dog, which is a way of transporting children to a real-world fantasy. Typically, children learn about "what is," but I help to open their eyes to "what can be." Interestingly, I practiced this on my own children as I helped them understand and appreciate the majesty of life.
