As a younger man and with his first child on the way, Mark realized his career choice and real passion – fiction writing – would have to be put temporarily on hold because it wasn’t going to provide for his family. So he chose to embark on a career in life insurance and ultimately achieved the respected Chartered Life Underwriter designation. Now that Mark has published his first fiction novel which has recently been optioned for a screenplay, he still works in the life insurance field because of his desire to help people and in our conversation shares the touching posthumous letter from a past client which explains why his second career choice still means so much to him.
