Mark Cohen grew up in Denver. He earned his BA in economics at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington in 1980 and received his law degree from the University of Colorado School of Law in Boulder in 1983. From 1983 to 1987 he served as a Judge Advocate (JAG) in the U.S. Air Force. In 1986, he won the American Bar Association's Outstanding Young Military Service Lawyer award. From 1987 to 1995, he practiced law in Omaha. He has authored six articles published in the American Jurisprudence Proof of Facts series. His non-legal articles have appeared in magazines that include Inside Kung Fu and Camping & RV. He served eighteen months as Interim Municipal Judge for the City of Boulder and also served on the Executive Board of the Colorado Municipal League. He lives with his wife, two daughters, and three dogs in Nederland, Colorado, seventeen miles west of and 3,000 feet above Boulder. His interests include weightlifting (he can bench press 300 pounds), karate and philosophy. The Fractal Murders is his first novel. He has just finished a new Pepper Keane novel. Mark Cohen's debut novel, The Fractal Murders, was originally self-published and was chosen as a Book Sense 76 Top Mystery in 2002 and was a finalist for the Colorado Book Award. Mysterious Press published a revised hardcover edition (0-89296-799-4) in 5/04. The book has received terrific reviews from Publishers Weekly, Booklist, Kirdus Reviews, Dallas Morning News, and the Santa Fe New Mexican.From Publishers Weekly:
Despite the lack of the underlying complex concept (fractal geometry) and the philosophical ponderings that distinguished Cohen's debut, The Fractal Murders (2004), this solid follow-up shows appealing new facets of rugged Colorado sleuth Pepper Keane. Keane's old law firm hires him to dognap a champion bluetick coonhound belonging to Karlynn Slade, the estranged wife of the unsavory leader of an outlaw biker gang, as well as to baby-sit Karlynn until she can enter a federal witness protection program. The job gets harder when Karlynn disappears; dicier when her biker husband hires Keane to find her; and deadlier when her trail intersects with one bearing the scent of an unsolved murder from Keane's past. Many of the intriguing characters who assisted Keane previously reappear, including his love interest, math professor Jane Smyers, and his friend and martial arts mentor, Scott McCutcheon. Though Keane makes some difficult choices in morally ambiguous situations, his encounters with bikers, skinheads and survivalists leave little time for the kind of rumination that made The Fractal Murders so distinctive.
