Professor Mark Edwards Publishes Novel Pirates On Dinosaur Island
News Story: February 1, 2012

Department of Communication and Media Studies adjunct instructor Mark Edwards has published his book Pirates on Dinosaur Island with GemmaMedia. Outside of teaching, Edwards has worked as an author of short stories and a playwright. His play Ladies in Hats emerged in the Boston Theatre Marathon and was a Kennedy Center semi-finalist. His story "Last Call" was included in The Last Man Anthology and "The Man Who Shot Bigfoot" graced the pages of Space and Time Magazine
“I’m excited to publish this, and delighted to have a book in a series devoted to increasing literacy. It was a lot of fun to write a classic yarn where I got to explore the adventure stories that turned me into a reader when I was young.” 
Edwards is currently working on a historical novel about the Book of Kells.
