Mason’s first attempts at writing were song lyrics he penned while playing bass guitar in a rock band during his teens. In the fifty years since its beginning his passion for writing has evolved from a story told with two hundred words, in the course of a three-minute musical composition to ninety-thousand-word novels.
Born in Dallas, Texas as part of the baby boom following World War II, Mason came of age during the Vietnam War era. As a young man, he traveled throughout the USA, as well as Central America, Canada, Europe, New Zealand and Australia. Along the way he worked as a carpenter, a cheese shop owner, and a motorcycle parts salesman, to make ends meet.
Today, Mason lives on the Gulf Coast with his wife and two (at last count) rescue cats. When he’s not writing, he enjoys exploring his new locale, motorcycling and recording music.
