The Moonquest

Mark David Gerson will be joining us on Writers in the Sky Podcast January 4th, 2008!

Mark David Gerson has taught writing as a creative and spiritual pursuit for more than 15 years, helping both novice and seasoned writers to deepen their creativity, move through creative blocks and answer their call to write. He came to this work after many years of feeling he wasn't creative and didn't have original stories to tell. He disproved that myth and answered his call to write with The MoonQuest: A True Fantasy, a novel for adults and young adults that has already won awards nationally and in his home state of New Mexico.

Following on the heels of his success with The MoonQuest (itself the first volume of a projected trilogy), Mark David has written The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write, a book of inspiration, instruction and practice for writers, and has recorded a companion CD of guided meditations for writers. The book and CD, suitable for writers in all genres and all levels of experience, draw on his years of teaching and coaching in the U.S. and his native Canada and on his experiences writing The MoonQuest.

An inspirational speaker as well as an author, coach and mentor, Mark David has spoken to groups all over the country about empowerment, creativity, personal growth and spirituality. His essays on those same topics now reach readers in some two dozen countries through his free e-mail newsletter.

After nearly three years of full-time travel offering talks, workshops and seminars, Mark David now makes his home in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Synopsis: The Moonquest is a "true fantasy" set in a land where fear rules and storytelling spells death. Here, as black-clad armies terrorize the countryside, one young bard must come out of hiding to embark on The MoonQuest, the long-prophesied journey to end the tyranny...a journey guided only by stories...a journey that blurs the line between vision and reality. Only by trusting himself can he rekindle the spirit of the land. Only by trusting his imagination can he reignite the light of its darkened moon. A gripping and epic adventure rich with universal truth.
