Mark Gozonsky’s writing has appeared in The New York Times and The Sun. One essay, “Gritty All Day Long,” was anthologized in Best American Sports Writing. Mark has been writing stories and essays since his emergence as a gigantic music nerd in early-1970’s San Antonio, Texas. His favorite topics include teaching, reading, gardening, and the intersection of baseball and urban bicycling. He lives with his wife in Los Angeles, where he is freshly re-embarked on writing yet more after retiring from teaching high school English to some of the nicest kids in town.
