 Mark Pomeroy is the author of "The Brightwood Stillness"--only the second work of fiction to be published by OSU Press in its 53-year history. The novel takes a vivid look at friendship and the challenges of cross-cultural communication. In addition, its poignant take on the legacy of Vietnam and its Pacific Northwest setting will remind readers of the best elements of "A Good Scent From a Strange Mountain" and "Snow Falling on Cedars."

Mark Pomeroy lives with his family in Portland, Oregon, where he was born in 1969. He has received an Oregon Literary Fellowship for fiction and a residency at Caldera Arts. His short stories, poems, and essays have appeared in "Open Spaces," "The Wordstock 10," "Portland Magazine," "The Oregonian," the "Waco Tribune-Herald," and "What Teaching Means: Stories from America’s Classrooms." A former classroom teacher, he holds an MA in English Education from Teachers College, Columbia University, where he was a Fellow in Teaching. "The Brightwood Stillness" is his first novel.
