Mark Newhouse was born in Germany after losing most of his family in the Nazi Holocaust. His parents survived and immigrated to America without money and without speaking any English. He credits the American public school system for his education and success teaching in Central Islip, Long Island, and as an adjunct instructor at SUNY Old Westbury. In 1989, Mark was named Elementary/Secondary Teacher of the Year by the New York State Reading Association.
He believes that parents, teachers, clergy, government, and most of all children, must work together to stop the violence and hate in our schools and society. In order to promote a love of reading and writing, Mark Newhouse loves visiting children, parents and teachers in schools and libraries. Mr. Newhouse also founded and is 'Top Cat' of the Childrens Authors Team in The Villages, Florida. He has also been named, in 2002, Lake County Florida's Author of the Year.
