First off, my last name is Geatches, pronounced with a silent 'e' as in Gatches, or as my friend Roy likes to say... Gay-chis. You wouldn't believe the varied and crazy pronunciations I've heard over the years. I live in beautiful Murphy, NC with my girlfriends Sherry and Ali. What's wrong with you people? Ali is our ten year old boxer. We also have an array of other pets that include cats, chickens, ducks, and cows. Yes, you read that right. The cows are pets. They will never be eaten by us or anyone else, though I'm sure they would be delicious.


Mark Geatches has a Master’s Degree in trumpet performance from Florida State University and loves music of all kinds. After performing for several years, including a three year stint in Germany, he entered the business world. He built two small businesses before beginning a new chapter in his life; Mark now builds fiction.

Tamar and PJ One Giant Adventure

PJ's weekend began like any other, but his sense of tranquility was mere illusion. Hunted down and poisoned by a wicked humanoid strain, PJ slowly loses his health and sanity as a lone giant races to save him.

After centuries of solitude Tamar's decision to save PJ has unforeseen consequences. He unwittingly kills Krell, the vorteh Emperor's son and heir to the throne, placing a mark on his own head. Now Tamar must perform the nearly impossible task of creating an antidote that will save PJ, while avoiding marauding vorteh death squads. With PJ's outcome unknown Tamar makes one final decision. He confronts Emperor Dedac, sacrificing his life to save the lives of PJ and his family.

No animals, humans, vorteh, or giants were harmed during the writing of this book. ​Well, maybe some vorteh were.
