The Journey
by Mark T. Rasmussen

“The journey of a 1000 miles begin with a single step.” ~ Lao Tzu

And with that quote, the main character undertakes an epic road trip from Canada, across The United States of America, all the way up to the border of Mexico, all with the aim of finding himself as he faces the single biggest moment of his life.

What he experiences and discovers along the way, will reveal more about him, and his state of mind, than the strange assortment of oddball characters he meets on his odyssey.

Reminiscent of Jack Kerouac and John Updike, ‘The Journey’ is a tale that no matter how far you run, your demons always follow.

The Hotwife
by Mark T. Rasmussen

It all started out innocent enough. Perversions gave way to sexual fantasies, which fell over into love, until insecurity and jealousy entered the fray – and someone wound up shot.

Mama-Dada-Love
Written by Mark T. Rasmussen

A happy-sad book about a young boy learning to overcome his parent’s separation, to enjoy their love once more in a new, slightly different way.

Excerpt: One day Mama and Dada stopped playing.
And instead, started yelling at each other.

I played outside.
But still they fought.

Then one day they didn’t.
Mama was quiet. Dada was quiet.

Momster
Written by Mark T. Rasmussen

A funny, silly, playful take on Mom being a Monster, which kids will find hilarious, and parents fun.

Excerpt: If you don't clean up your room,
She'll chase you with a broom.
The Momster!

While she loves to read you a book,
If you don't eat all your greens, she won't cook.

She's cuddly and caring,
But scary and necessary.
She's the Momster!
