Mark Sullivan is the acclaimed author of eighteen novels, including the #1 New York Times bestselling Private series, which he writes with James Patterson. He’s received numerous awards for his writing, including the WHSmith Fresh Talent Award, and his works have been named a New York Times Notable Book and a Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year. After Beneath A Scarlet Sky far surpassed what he could have hoped, he recently published another Historical Fiction Novel about a story of incredible human perseverance.

Among other things, Carter and Mark discuss the difficulties of being an author, Mark’s journey learning to write in school and joining the Peace Corps for life experience, and how life can throw unexpected blessings your way. At the end of their conversation, they tell a story of common human struggle and love beginning from a random sentence from James Clavell’s Noble House.
