Marc Cavella has been a professional writer for nearly twenty years.
As a child, Marc read pretty much anything he could get his hands on. He really enjoyed books about history, biographies of famous Americans (especially baseball players from the 1940s, like Ted Williams and Jackie Robinson), and the "Garfield" comics. Growing up near the ocean, he was also interested in books about maritime history; one of his favorite books in his youth (aside from "Corduroy" by Don Freeman) was a collection of paintings of famous naval battles, which he still occasionally searches for at his local library.
Eventually Marc found writers like Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and Faulkner. These authors and many others inspired him to begin writing his own material, most of which focused on ordinary people's struggles to answer questions that are both modern and timeless.
Marc explores an aspect of those struggles in Tabernacle (which you can buy here!), his first novella. He has plans for two additional sequels (tentatively titled “T2: Judgment Day” and “T3: Salvation”, respectively) and a number of other books. One of these books is "A Lot Less Effort”, a sweetly humorous take on relationships and commitment that ponders the lengths we’ll go to in order to honor our most meaningful friendships, all set against the backdrop of Virginia's Civil War battlefields. Marc may soon put the book up on www.marccavella.com; be on the look out for it!
In his spare time, Marc enjoys relaxing with his family and their pets; reading about history, politics, and the history and politics of professional wrestling; and attending concerts. He also enjoys planning for the day when he opens his own bed & breakfast, which will serve locally sourced meals and snacks. (And by “locally sourced”, he means “purchased from the local supermarket”.)
