About the Author
L. C. Markland
Paul C. Markland has written several novels. He couples his personal experiences with educational and professional experiences. Though the majority of his writings are considered fictional, they are based on fact. Through romance, drama, and faith, readers are drawn into the story. That is, they, the readers, relate to the story told. His other works include: “All Things Work Together for Good (Romans 8:28)”, “Winds of Change”, “Killing Me Softly”, “Whispers in the Willows”, “No Holds Barred: No Holding Back”, “The Whispering Woods”, “Hard To Say I’m Sorry”, “I Existed” and “The Widow’s Web Trilogy.”
“All Things Work Together for Good (Romans 8:28),”
I am Paul C. Markland. I use my father’s name, L. C. Markland, as a pen name. He passed away when I was a teenager. I use his name to remember his legacy. If truth be told, my mother, Lucy, inspired me to write. For years, she desired to write a novel. She failed to do so. She believed she lacked the education and experience. Had she only known her error. She was very articulate and well-versed. She passed away in 2003. She never fulfilled her goal to write a great novel. Both parents encouraged me to pursue an education. I graduated from Akron East High in 1983.
I attended the University of Akron where I earned a B.A. in Sociology, Criminology, and Victimology. My sights were set on law school, that is, until I was called into ministry. I acquired my M.A. from Malone College in Canton, OH. I faithfully served in my calling for twenty years. Health issues forced me to step down. It was then I decided to honor my father and mother through the stories I share. I am married to Judy Avon Erb Markland. We have two daughters, Ashley and Samantha, a son-in-law, Matthew Gibbons, and a grandson, Deacon Gibbons.
