From Air Force to Author, Veteran Publishes Science Fiction Book

Hometown Heroes

Mark Roberts picked up some pen and paper back in 1984 while he was enlisted in the Air Force, and decided he was going to write a book as a hobby. However, a busy 20 year career had him stationed all over the country without any free time to finish his novel.

Mark served 16 years as a law enforcement specialist, and was a nuclear security specialist prior to that. He spent time at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina, Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, Osan Air Base in Korea, and finally Edwards Air Force Base in California. He also spent a year at Dhahran Air Base as part of Operation Desert Shield. He retired as an E6 Tech Sergeant. 

Once retired, his wife hinted that he should work on finishing his science fiction book about a group of Air Force security policemen caught up in a science experiment and sent back to the Civil War. So last year, he spent up to two hours a day typing away until The Clio Project: A Military Time Travel Story was complete. Published in January, the veteran couldn’t be more excited to have a final copy in his possession.

Mark now wants the world to read his story. To purchase your own copy, click here.
